DAVID BROWN 1390//CASEIH 1394 UPDATE


Recommended Posts

Well its been a long time coming (over a year) but last night i had a go at casting a couple

of chassis .Didnt turn out too bad on the synthetic rubber got most of the engine detail

i dont think i let it set quite hard enough

but that is due to the fact that i must of not mixed the hardener good enough

with the rubber

if i do  rubber casts again i wont use the hardener and leave it 16 hours

On the tin it says 2-3 hours  but we live and learn ;)

as for the Bonnet ,floor pan and cab i dont have enough to cast up so im hopeing

i can buy some off DT for now

ive got the decals BANG ON im realy impressed with them  ;)

i just need the paint to do them now ill start casting the resin tonight

then with the two types of chassis i will make a frankenstein chasiss to

be acurate to the 90s model i want in 1/32 wheel base

i will keep you updated in text until ive got a finnished product

then post up the progression pics up to the final prototype

wish me luck  ;)

cheers F P

just got to wait for the rubber  to set as there is a little still soft

as i painted the engine detail with the rubber from the lid (less  hardener)

so hopefully it will go off ill just keep checking it

if i mix small amounts of the  resin and its not enough to fill a mould

can i just top it up after with a new mix on the set resin

OK Ive just taken out two casts one DAVID BROWN 990 and one DAVID BROWN 1690

just the chassis

they have both come out as good as expected the 990 could be used as a standen beet harvester cyclone it is realy that good

im going to cast a few more then get a drimel tool and take the engine off the 990

and transplant it on to the then shortend 1690 chassis as the right fuel tank is on that model

i should be able to do a 1594 out of the orgional chassis

the 990 im going to play about with and try to make a selectomatic instead of a implimatic

the ford 6600 mud guards should be easily modded  for that job at a later date

i will post up some update pics this evening  8);)

I will be buying  the bonnet ,cab etc in I havent got the resourses ,convidence ,dollers

for that just yet this was the first time id ever done casting was easy but i could have done

better if i isolated each master cast as you can see the mould is quite bad at the ends of the tractors the 990s rear and the 1690s front wieght  but il learn from my mistakes

great work guys,I wish I had the bottle to tacklecasting in resin .

It just seems a bit technical for me !

I will have to try it one .

Thanks for sharing it with us . :)

If I can do it    Believe me anyone can do it

My casts are not without thier mistakes as i diddnt have enough synthetic rubber

as you see i have resourted to plugging up the ends so the resin doesnt spill out

blue-tack has been invaluble to me over the last few days  ;D ;D

thinking of changing my I M to the "blue-tack_monster" ;D ;D ;D ;D
