I want to make some Riley Conversions for a couple of Herons, building up eight donks is going to be a pain in the butt. By casting I can get away with two masters (an inner and outer)

That kit will be perfect for what you want, it's exactly the same kit I use for my resin casting.
I have found though that postage can be the big killer depending on where you live in OZ

Note that the resin tends to expand a little when setting.

submit button, my computer froze and I still can't get into AMI forums from my home computer!! Anyway, bottom line, the kit is great for what you are planning, although you can get all of the stuff locally.

Both Kirkside Products (www.kirkside.com.au) in Osborne Park and Fibreglass Resin Sales (www.fibreglass-resin-sales.com.au) in Welshpool for example, sell the Barnes products (Procast and Pinkysil in the kits). All the other bits and bobs can be picked up for less than nothing.

Give me a call or email me if you have any questions,

Cheers, John
