Here's my first one came out pretty good. A few small bubbles from the mold but really didn't try to keep the bubbles out just wanted to test how the material handles. My next mold will be bubble free and should produce a perfect emblem.

They look good!

I had planned on doing some of the earlier style Glasspar emblems- They are a bit deeper relief and were originally cast in Zinc. After some 'playing' with things, I decided that resin would be pretty much the only way to replicate the details well without investing a ton of money in a die. I'd assume that's what you are using?

They should finish up NICELY... Any minor imperfections could be filled easily before painting them... So I wouldn't worry too much about bubbles, It's tough to make a mold without them!

I have everything needed to cast these in Brass. The pot metal for the old style just does not hold up.

I have had everything to do this for years but just no time to get started.

I also have a small scale chrome platting setup for the model emblems as well.

Maybe we can have a get-together at my house this fall and work out the details and get started?? We could make it a SOCAL mini-meet. :silly:

They are paintable. I painted my first one to see how it adhered. Was thinking of seeing if I can get some gold sticker made to fit on top like the original had a gold paint. But you can just paint them solid or if your steady with a brush hand paint on the gold.

I do plan to sell them on ebay. Much better then those old broken ones that one ebay seller was trying to get $65.00 for :laugh: So what would you pay each or a pair for them.

Oh yes I made a new mold. They are coming out perfect!
