Description

This black rubber mould allows you to cast a 40mm scale metal cannon. There are artillery men available in other moulds here (PA71) and here (PA72). Assembly is required after casting so we recommend our superglue. This mould can be reused hundreds of times using our low temperature Model Metal. On average, if the ingates are remelted, you should be able to cast two cannon per ingot of metal. Casting accessories are extra.

The battle of Rossbach was fought on November 5th 1757 between the Prussian army of Frederick the Great and the combined armies of France and the German Empire under Soubize.

When the allied commanders noticed the Prussians moving back from their previous positions to behind a hill they mistakenly believed thy were retreating even before the battle begun and recklessly advanced to overtake and destroy them. The Prussians realising the allies error, prepared their cavalry and artillery just out of sight of the allies over the hill crest. As the Franco-German army surged up the hill, they were suddenly met by the Prussian cavalry at full gallop and the roar of artillery fire, which threw them into disarray. Despite valiant attempts by the French cavalry to halt the now advancing Prussian infantry and rank their own troops, the battle was lost and Prussia won the day.

    Geart molds / Great service.

    Firstly the service was great! Delivery to Australia was quick and cheap, very happy about that!!

    The first time I cast a wheel I had trouble with a spoke, but then I watch the video on how to cast the parts again.

    The next time I gently taped the mold as shown in the video and it came out perfect.
    If the mold is warm and you give it a gentle tape after you pure it you should have no problems.

    The cannon barrel and carriage cast very well first time.

    This was my first time at casting and it went well, I will be getting more molds to try out.
    This was a fun experience.

    My kingdom for a well-cast wheel.

    I use these to represent 6 pdr guns. The barrel and carriage cast well quite easily, but the wheel takes lots of work. I had to vent every spoke (on both halves) and make sure that the mold was quite warm and the metal quite hot. I struggled to get a complete set of spokes. Then I reached Nirvana and cast perfect wheel after perfect wheel.
    Be careful when you clip the pour spout off of the carriage and gun. Try to hold the clippers further up the spout or you may damage the gun and carriage details.
