6 Star metal Tin/Bismuth (40%/60%) alloy is lead free. However it is more rigid than Model Metal and not suitable for bending small parts like poles for pikemen.
Numbers of figures per bar of metal:
25-28mm scale = 10 single unmounted figures.
40mm scale = 5 single unmounted figures.
54mm scale = 3 single unmounted figures.
Weight per bar: 100gr.
Lead Free – Safe for Children to play with figures.
Low Melting Point – 150c.
Easy to melt on a domestic cooker.
Cast Figures can brake if bent.
Gives good detailed castings.
Can be re-melted over and over.
Melts at 150° C (302° F). Cast at 300-320°C.
Ingot length 122 mm. Width 25mm, weight 100gr approx (may vary by a few grams). The volume of the bar is the same as our other alloys. As the alloy is lighter, you get more figures per kilo than Model or Standard Metal.
