I don’t know how to cast, so welcome to the medieval style. Plaster and resin putty. Lol

Medieval or not, the result is what counts and your spinner looks great. Never tried to cast myself, except clear resin in wood :D.

Cheers Rob

So Martin, how did you do this? I'm assuming you used the kit part as the master for the plaster but what resin putty did you use? 

May be simple but it definitely worked which is the main thing.

Same here

Cheers guys. I've now looked at it in daylight and it's not as bad as I thought. Think it was just the lighting it was under when I took the picture last night.

Spinner from He-111 is exactly what I need and what was used in real life, unfortunately  it is not available in 1/24 scale. 

Bummer.   If we only had a mutual friend with a 3d printer.

Well...  I hope you are receptive to Martin's PM.

Of course. I always am ...

Btw, printing a spinner should not be a big issue. If someone is willing to do the research and give me the basic dimensions and profile, it's a few minutes design, and a few hours' printing job ;)

If the 3D design is already done, I just need the 3D file, either in a usable 3D format or as .stl file (.stl is for 3D printing already). It can then be scaled down to the size needed on the slicer program.

If you have only a 2D drawings of, say, a spinner, I need basic dimensions like diameter, length, size of openings, profile. Translating a 2D spinner drawing in 3D is easy enough. Doing a 3D design of a wheel is a lot more involved, as the shape becomes complex.
