    Ok, I'm planning on making casts of parts as I customize them, But I don't know what a good material is for the mold and for the plastic, I'm more interested in the actual plastic, I'm looking for one that's not terrifyingly expensive, but is also feels reasonably solid. Currently, I've been looking at this for the mold TAP Urethane RTV Mold-Making System: TAP Plastics and this for the plastic TAP Quik-Cast • Polyurethane Casting Resin System: TAP Plastics. I apologize if there's a thread on this already.

    Use search in tips and tutorials. Personally I like smooth on, I avoid alumilite like the plague and have no clue about tap.
