Brooklin Diaries for April 5
"Hello and a very warm welcome to this weeks blog. We had visitors in this week and Darren relived his childhood with some plastic bricks. Enjoy.

PATTERN MAKING – SARAH
We are really close to getting the BML 30 moulds made.
Sarah is cleaning up all of the secondary castings so that we can make a production mould.

PATTERN MAKING – SARAH
It is important to engrave the model number into the pieces so that we know what goes where.
The head on this engraving tool is about 0.25mm.

PATTERN MAKING – DARREN
Ever the man-child, Darren is enjoying playing with his old toys. LEGO!

PATTERN MAKING – DARREN
No Technic or Bionicle here. Just good old-fashioned blocks. We have been using these same blocks for over 25 years.

PATTERN MAKING – DARREN
We find that Lego is the perfect box-making equipment for our moulding.
We use a liquid rubber to make various small moulds during master production and the Lego allows us to create different sized containers very quickly. Plus we can play with it at lunchtimes.

PATTERN MAKING – Mr P
Mr P has been very busy getting all of the details put on this baseplate and it looks great.

PATTERN MAKING – Mr P
Our models are small and we have tools to match. You can see how thin the blades are on the fretsaw.

***TOP SECRET***
Ooooh, well what could these pieces be for?

PAINT ROOM – BOB
These caravans are being checked over and sanded ready to go into the paint room.
In case you are wondering, Bob is wearing gloves…he is not a Smurf.

VISITING TIME
We were very happy to show our visitors around this week. As is usual, they all left very happy and amazed at how we build our models. Thank you for coming!"
