This is coming along nicely! 2020 is really turning into the year of the Batphone, yours is now the third project that i've seen in various stages.

Really enjoyed the motherload of photos in the RPF link that you shared. Did you decide the pursue the Gordon's office version versus the Pilot or Bruce's study in the end?

Got my best test casting out a few weeks ago! After about 9 different resins and 12 different pigments I found a mix I like. The test casting is thin, but that's only to avoid wasting too much resin for castings that aren't going to be kept ;)

Thanks for the complements guys! Laying more resin in this afternoon if all goes well, planning to do a proper casting this time instead of keeping it thin ;)
