Working on Moulds (PostTYW) ...

I've returned to my mid-17C to complete my set of moulds...

I am working on three moulds

  • original pikeman master (as the old mould is no longer useable) and a new musketeer variant (a bit of sculpting to do).
  • mounted dragoon and cuirassier masters (which never got into a mould)
  • another mould for the horse, the current one is tired and just usable; I will need a new mould as there are a lot of horses to cast for the Polish army project.
