Product Description

Three Moulds to produce illustrated item. You will require 250g of metal per figure.

This unit was raised in Hyderabad, India, in 1862, by Captain John Gordon of the Coldstream Guards, by a treaty with the independent Nizam of Hyderabad; who was forced to give up large tracts of his land to pay for its upkeep and maintenance. According the the treaty the regiment was to provide security for the Nizam, but for the British authorities it served the added purpose of keeping his own power in check. Thus, when the Nizam's younger brother rebelled in 1929, the regiment moved into Hyderabad City and restored order. Later in 1854, the units name was changed to the 4th Cavalry and it became part of the Hyderabad contingent. During the Indian mutiny (1857-1858) Gordons Horses served as part of the Central Indian Field Force and took part in the defeat of a large rebel army near Mehidpus. It took part also in the relief of Neemuch and the capture of Jhansi. The regiment later saw action in the opening phases of the second Afgan War (1879), in several action o the North-west frontier. It served in Burma from 1887, undertaking police and anti-guerrilla activities. In 1890 it was renamed the 4th lancers, and again in 1903 it was renamed the 30th Lancers.

If you have difficulty getting this mould to fill you could try venting the mould. Vents are thin channels that are cut into the mould surface, which enables air trapped in the mould to escape. Before cutting the vents warm the mould as this makes the rubber easier to cut. With a sharp craft knife cut 1mm channels from the part that is not filling to the outside of the mould usually to the top of the mould. Sometimes it is easier to drill a 1.5mm hole through the mould body and add a vent to the outside of the mould. You will get a small amount of flash on each vent, but this is easy to remove.
