Wanted to try something new since Iím impatient and hate waiting for wood to cure. Picked up some alumalite amazing resin last night from Michaels since theyíre running 40 percent off any one item til Sunday. Got some mold release and play doh as well.

I added a few scoops of micro balloons to help with buoyancy.

Made a primitive shape out of play doh, poured the alumalite in and then hand sanded it down. Big screw eyes epoxied in and some flashibou owner ST-56ís.

Continuation of the stickbait.

For anyone curious on molding on the ultra cheap. Play doh and mold release works really well. When the resin is forming into a solid, you can very easily grab the mold and more or less sculpt it to shapes you want. Lot of sanding afterwards but Iím slowly getting the hang of it. I like the fact that I can immediately test these as well. No waiting for curing

Tons of microballoons in this one. Line tie down at that angle seems to make for a better gliding motion. Initial swim test was good. Will see what it looks like in the morning when itís all assembled.
