AR15 Particle Board Building Mold

Post by emmalroc » Thu Sep 15, 2016 6:44 pm

Hi! As I got to the bottom of unpacking my kit, I found the particle board building mold, which I did not realize would be included. So, my question is, do you advise completely building around the outer seam and fiberglassing the hull, then removing and turning over to the building cradle, and finally installing the inner frames and building the outer seams? If not, do you instead recommend just tack welding the hull completely, then removing the building molds from the hull, installing the frames and building the inner seams? Thanks!
Emma

Emma, I will wait for Jacques to advise on your build but I did want to apologise that I did not make it more clear about your mold being included!! It will really assist you with the build!! Jeff

Assemble the hull around all the mold and frames including the bow mold.

Yes, we include a bow mold, a small bonus for the kit builders.

I replied from home yesterday and did not have the files in front of me.
Yes, there are molds. 5 molds.

Did you receive a PDF file with the kit?
There is file (drawing) named AllMolds.pdf.
It shows the particle board sheet with the name of all the molds.
You should also have three more pdf files to help you identify the parts.

I did not receive a pdf with my kit. How would I access it? Thanks for all of the feedback!

It was in the package, under the cardboard.
Maybe it got lost while unpacking.
Jamie will send you a copy on Monday.
It will answer most of your questions.
