Product Description

The French armies had many types of cavalry to deal with different tasks before, during and after any battle. Dragoons were useful for scouting, they could dismount to harrass enemy infantry or fight enemy light infantry. This set of three black rubber moulds can cast a French mounted dragoon and his horse. The horse will cast in two separate pieces to reduce shrinkage by having a body cavity rather than a solid block of metal. Assembly is easy but if you are capable of soldering metal, then this is useful for the horse. Superglue can also be used.

There are no casting equipment or metal included in this mould set unless you choose metal from the options above. The casting tools needed to use this mould are available as is the option of bulk buying metal. The more you buy the cheaper it gets, per bar. The bare minimum needed to cast this mounted figure is about three ingots of metal (360 grams). Most of the metal goes into casting the horse.

After glueing everything together it is really important to prime the metal surface with car primer before painting it with any acrylics, to avoid the paint pealing.

If you have difficulty getting this mould to fill you could try venting the mould. Vents are thin channels that are cut into the mould surface, which enables air trapped in the mould to escape. Before cutting the vents warm the mould as this makes the rubber easier to cut. With a sharp craft knife cut 1mm channels from the part that is not filling to the outside of the mould usually to the top of the mould. Sometimes it is easier to drill a 1.5mm hole through the mould body and add a vent to the outside of the mould. You will get a small amount of flash on each vent, but this is easy to remove.
