I am soon to start scratch building a interior for the Shilka. I am in need of casting supplies. Can anybody recommend a good store, web or brick and mortar?

Matt,

I buy direct from Smooth-on.

My Preference is Mold Max 20 and Smooth Cast 321

I agree. Smooth-On is one I found on the internet too, and their mold materials worked well for me.
If I can't wait that long though, I go to the local Hobby Lobby for a decent variety of resins.

I've used these guys for their mold-making materials for quite a while. It's the 'Oomoo 25' product. Easy-peasy stuff.
Cheers!

I used to work for a cottage company that used resin exclusively so I have a decent bit of knowledge on the subject. Please allow me a few days and I'll PM you with a detailed reply with a list of companies and some tips.
