Decided to make a mold! :o Hope it works! ;) Just need to remove the flaws carried from the patched Master! :)
Mold needs to be thoroughly polished before casting radio plate. Couple of days more :)

Take your time making the mold to ensure the final product is flawless! 8O Fibreglass has a tendency to have bubbles!
