Description

This blister contains a single durable black rubber mould that casts 54mm scale fully round metal miniatures of toy soldiers. This is compatible with PA853, PA855 and PA856 moulds. 

Originally raised in 1793 from the clan Cameron in Lochaber, the regiment eventually recruited from across the highlands of Scotland. It had a distinguished history, serving in Egypt, Spain and finally the battle of Waterloo during the war against Napoleon. It later served in both the Crimean war and the Indian mutiny.

In 1873, upon receiving new colours from queen Victoria, they were renamed the Queen’s own Cameron Highlanders. They continued their illustrious service, fighting in the Anglo-Egyptian. War in 1882, the war against the Mahdi in the Sudan in 1898 and in the second Boer war. Their parade uniforms included an impressively tall bonnet with a white ostrich feather and officers continued to wear a tartan sash over the left shoulder.

These moulds are suitable for casting in all alloys, if you use the Prince August Solder Pot to aid you. You can also find the Digital Thermometer very useful for making sure you have the metal at the right temperature.

There are PTFE rods included to allow you to make the neck hole to attach the head later. Just place the small rods in the body cavity where the head would be after you have applied the talcum powder and before assembling the mould. Take it out after casting and keep safe for reuse. If you loose the PTFE rod, more are available online.

Assembly of the casted figures is required so you may wish to acquire some superglue suitable for metal. Scratch the areas a little in a crosshatch pattern before attaching to give more grip for the glue.

Colours for painting these uniforms are recommended as follows:

Uniform: Black, Blue, White, Green, Red and Scarlet.

Painting instructions PDF for PA853 to PA856.

This product is not suitable for children under the age of 14.
