Casting advice:

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.

We recommend our scalpels because you need an extremely sharp blade to properly vent a mould.


Rubber Mould.

Includes: 2 PTFE rods that you place in the neck slots of the bodies so cavities exist for the heads to attach.

Several Highland regiments were raised during the 1750's for service in both North America and the European theatres. Raised in Perth in 1759 and expanded by more companies in 1760, the first 87th regiment was shipped to Germany for service with the regular British army during the Seven Years War. They saw active service during the battles of Warburg, Vellinghausen and several other engagements. Here they were used exclusively as light infantry.

The regiment comprised 9 battalion companies and one Grenadier company, distinguished by different headgear, the battalion companies wearing a dark blue bonnet and the grenadiers a fur cap with a front plate. Other distinguishing features were the short coat and the kilt whose excess length was drawn up and pinned at the left shoulder.  The coats were the usual brick-red of the British army with green as facings. Pipers wore reverse colours. Their kilt pattern was the regulation government tartan.

Details of the King’s Colour and Regimental Colour can be found at, which is an excellent and free online resource dealing in great detail with this subject, covering all relevant combatants and with a huge variety of illustrations and drawings.
