nrg710 Posted January 24, 2014 Share #1 Posted January 24, 2014 I am about to embark upon building a 1:87 model of RMS Titanic. That will make the hull just over 3m (10ft) long. My intention is for it to be RC and lit. I also want it to be up there with the best models of this ship. I have toyed with the idea of plank on frame construction for the hull, but because of certain limitations, I'm looking into other methods and I'm pretty set on the idea of CNC cutting a mould. The hull would then be constructed in the mould out of fibreglass. Questions are: - what's a good material to make the mould out of? - will any external details that are CNC cut in the mould be replicated on the finished surface of there fibreglass? In other words, how good is the resin at preserving intricate details in the mould? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
