Sometimes you need to make your own part for a model project.

Or you want to fabricate one part, and cast multiples of it so they all are the identical.

These are the tools and materials to cast what you need.

Many people who cast parts at home use Legos to make the "box" to pour the rubber / silicone into - to form the mold (around the original part) from which the resin castings will be made.

The reason is after the silicone is dry, it's very easy to remove the Legos sorrounding the mold - with less chance of damage to the mold. Plus you can make the box as big or small as you need instantly.

You need a Lego Baseplate for the bottom,and then arrange your Lego blocks into a square (making four walls).

Model Making

Casting parts comes down to two basics:

ONE: You need to make the actual mold to cast from, which is usually made from rubber / silicone. So you need those chemicals. The mold allows you to reproduce your fabricated model part many times.

TWO: You need to use resin to cast the actual model part, using the previous mold you made. Once the mold is made, the resin is poured into the mold. When cured, it's taken out of the mold.

It takes practice to produce resin parts. You not only have to master the resin casting, you have to master the mold making process first as well.

The vaccum chambers and pumps draw out the gasses that cause bubbles - those will or can form in and on the cast part.

The pump gives you a smoother part, with a lot less chance of air bubbles and pinholes. Two major things that will ruin a cast part.

There are dozens of videos on youtube and detailed articles online showing how it's done. It can be fun at times because you can reproduce multiple parts that all look the same, but you can also custom make parts for your own model project. Which makes your model more accurate, or just better looking than others who have built the same kit.

If it's something you scratch built the first time, it's often easier (with less time and money) to replicate the part in resin.
