Model Metal (54% Lead / 11% Tin / 35% Bismuth) is our best casting metal. It contains bismuth which reduces the melting temperature and shrinkage. While most alloys shrink while solidifying, Model metal does not. Can be used in rubber, plaster and metal moulds.

Ingot length 122 mm, Width 25mm, weight 125gr

Melts at 138°C (280°F).

Cast at 300-370°C.

Melts on electric cooker at maximum. For very fine detailed casting we recommend our Solder Melting Pot which can bring up temperature up higher. 

Shipping Notice: Due to problems with Australian airport security repeatedly returning metal, Please ONLY use TNT shipping for Australia.

    Model metal

    Although I purchased the model medal, I have used it for making other moulds and find it most satisfactory for moulding.

    Mode Metal

    Excellent product. Easy to work with.

    I mainly cast 54mm figures (Seven Years' War), and the modelmetal is perfect for highlighting details.

    model metal

    I bought just the right amount tho' I could not determine from the website how big the bars were. They cast very well, despite some amateurish air bubbles, but on recasting with a longer time on the stove, they were pretty good. I was making sideframe castings for tram trucks in high temperature rubber moulds.

  • JD - 3rd Feb 2016


    I have other fragile, highly detailed molds and this is a great metal to use. I'm not to worried about burning out these molds with this metal and even more important it gives excellent details.

    casting discovery

    I'm discovering the casting with your metal. My 30mm prototypes thank you and your great items . Very fast delivery

  • Patrik Johansson - 12th May 2015

    Noticeable difference

    I was surprised by the clear difference in quality between this metal and cheaper alternatives. A definite step up from the melted-down printing press type I've used before...
    Also, very affordable.
