'Porta-worktop' and mould list

Needing a suitable work surface for making moulds and casting I went for a rummage in the garage (the 'store room' at the bottom of the garden). I decided to use an old jigsaw puzzle board (about 50 years old), which I have used in the past for casting, and an old small square table top of similar vintage. The two have been joined together using some offcuts of contiboard.
on the rear is some old carpet tile, so that the back doesn't scratch the surface it rests on..
 the 'porta-worktop' set up in the garage resting on top of my G scale railway layout..
the garage is suitably equipped with a reasonably comfy chair, a little fan heater and a radio.

I now have an order list for the moulds, going from the 'simplest' to the more complex. Contents for each mould:
  • peasant woman + standing man
  • janissary + walking man
  • officer + ensign
  • drummer + seargent
  • pikeman + musketeer
  • mounted: officer + ensign
  • mounted: trooper + drover
  • horse
