Hydrospan
« on: December 17, 2008, 06:11 PM »
I thought i saw a thread on this, but lost it. I was wondering if anyone had ever successfully increased or enlarged any vehicles using this stuff. I was thinking AT-AP enhancement. I can't imagine how'd you get two items to expand at the same rate and end up being the same size. sounds interesting though.

I've heard some about it but never used it.  I'd like to give it a go at some point though.  The thought of being able to shrink down any larger scale headsculpt to 1:18 is, itself, intriguing.

Vehicles and casting wouldn't be very practical, but I can imagine more uses for it with figures for sure.

Sounds fascinating. I'd love to learn how to enlarge a Tri-Droid, at least that's what immediately pops into mind when I think about how I would use a method like this.

I've used it, but with very little success.
You would need to make a mold of the existing  ship, then mix and pour the Hydrospan into the mold.
I dont think you could bank on the 2 parts expanding to the same size. You would need to pour from the same batch and have them both in exact same conditions for expanding.
Just my opinion though.
