Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
I'm ready to make the first casts of the Mk2 BZ wagon.
These are tiny resin dots fixed onto waterslide transfer film, produced by the American firm Archers, and they very simple and effective to use.
I brush a coat of clear varnish over them before I cover the whole thing in RTV to try and stop them being pulled off when I removed the cured mould, which mostly works.
As with the first wagon the ends are going to be a two-stage process because of the differences in the hinges / supports where they fold down flat on the real wagons.
I will cast two copies of this piece - which has all the details common to both - and use them to make another pair of masters.
