Casting parts

Has anyone tried casting parts? If so, how did it go? I kind of want a clear rx-78-2 but they’re stupidly over priced anywhere I could find one, and it might be a good way to make one or clear versions of other kits

You would need a vacuum chamber to remove the air bubbles from the resin and vacuum chambers are not cheap and you can still get air bubbles in the resin even if you use one. Clear resin takes a lot of practice to get it right.

Yeah, either that or a pressure pot, and I definitely don’t have the space for all that in my current living space. Ultimately it would be cheaper to just buy a clear kit but the possibility of making my own clear kits is tantalizing
