Model production

Sev­er­al of the Soci­ety’s mem­bers pro­duce fig­ures in tin or resin them­selves. It allows you to pro­duce your very own spe­cial mod­el fig­ures. Queue fig­ures can here be used as a start­ing point. For exam­ple, one can buy a mod­el fig­ure of a French line infantry­man and then con­vert it to a Dan­ish infantry man in 1808, when the chakot was intro­duced into the Dan­ish / Nor­we­gian army.
There are flat and round-shaped mod­el fig­ures and in addi­tion a semi-cir­cu­lar fig­ure type, which is most­ly used for toy fig­ures. There are dis­play cas­es of par­tic­u­lar­ly high qual­i­ty, toy fig­ures and war game fig­ures in many dif­fer­ent sizes eg. 28 mm, 54 mm, 70 mm and 90 mm.
Once the mod­el fig­ure has been mod­eled, one can begin to pro­duce molds. The mod­el is put in wax and a mul­ti-part mold in sil­i­cone rub­ber is pro­duced. The fin­ished mold is cut with cast­ing and air ducts.
For the pro­duc­tion of tin fig­ures, it is impor­tant to use a good alloy that is sta­ble over time and which flows eas­i­ly — so it deliv­ers razor-sharp details. Three parts of 60 per­cent tin and one part of the type met­al con­tain­ing anti­mo­ny are, in terms of expe­ri­ence, opti­mal at a melt­ing tem­per­a­ture of 300 degrees Celsius.
Sim­ple pour mold­ing or slip mold­ing can be used in a machine built for the pur­pose. The parts of the fin­ished items can be joined togeth­er by sol­der­ing or gluing.
