Cast Seven Years' War semi-flat 40mm scale Artillery Officer and Crewman carrying round with interchangeable heads. Cannon mould sold separately. Includes 2 PTFE rods.
Difficulty Levels 1 to 5:
Use 4 clamps instead of two (or use more elastic bands than normal). Space the clamps on the upper and lower quarters of each side of the mould when securing the mould. Venting should only be needed if you are not using Model Metal.
When venting you may need to drill a 1.5 mm hole through the mould at certain points. On the reverse side of the mould (the plain side) where the hole comes out you can add a channel upwards if you choose to, but as long as you have placed the rough side of the support board against the mould the air should be able to escape safely. Learn more about venting from this video.
