So has begun the learning process of resin casting. I purchased several die-cast cars that I want to add to my collection off of e-bay - one of which is the 1948 Tucker - one of my favorite cars. I need to figure out how to cast an RTV mold of a slot car body. For now, I cast it in one solid piece and carved out the interior for the Tyco TCR chassis. Unfortunately, the wheel base is too long for the chassis, so I am going to have to cut down the car and most likely make a 2-door sedan out of it. Tucker never made one, but I found a photoshopped version on line that was pretty cool looking. Attached is a photo of the body and chassis, minus the rear wheels.
