Become a car designer! Use the Model Builder casting instruction to make a custom 3D model and turn it into a fully running RC car or display model.
The DESIGNSTUDIOPRO™ car builder clay modeling kit is based on a 1/10th scale RC car chassis.
DESIGNSTUDIOPRO™ contains a 3 hour instructional DVD teaching professional
3-D automotive modelling techniques.
Use your new skills to change our car design into whatever car you choose. You can even make a scale model of the new Chevy Tru140S Concept car!

The first step in casting your scale model is to make the car flanges. Look at the 5 piece mold we took off our clay model, we placed our flanges along the corner edges of the model.
In the DESIGNSTUDIOPRO™ casting instructions, the car body flange edge should be at least 1-1/2” extending from the clay.
Once you have created your front and rear flanges, cover the clay model with masking paper. Lightly tape the masking paper to the back side of the clay model flange. Lightly brush or spray the PVA release agent over the casting area. Brush at least two coats (allow PVA to dry completely).
Take one piece of the fiber glass cloth and place it over the casting surface. Use your paint brush to press and push the fiber glass onto the gel coat surface.
Clean up the mold pieces with water and acetone then bolt it back together. You should store your mold as one piece. Clean the PVA off the RC car body display model with water and a sponge.
