The mould is a rigid rectangle of 17,5cm x 4,7cm made of methacrylate. It has 4x18 holes, that is, you can make up to 72 bricks at the same time.
Each brick is 7x3mm, which would be 24,5 x 10,5cm in real life, if we consider it to be at 1/35. There is also another mould from the same company for building bricks of 4x9mm
As you may expect, it is extremely easy to use. Just fill the holes with clay or filler, wait and remove the bricks.
I have tested it with milliput, and it worked fine but it would have been convenient to add some de-moulding help like talcum. As it is rigid, you can not bend or twist it to remove the bricks.
On the other hand, being rigid allows to build perfectly equal bricks, as the mould is not deformed when you fill the holes and will keep the shape over the time.
In my case I wanted the bricks to be slightly different, to be used as rubble, therefore I was not very careful when filling it, nor bothered to smooth the top and bottom sides.
For building walls you may want to level the surface and ensure the hole is full, to get identical bricks.
The mould allows to easily build bricks that can be used for walls or rubble. Apart from the drying time, filling and removing the bricks should be quite quick.
The material of the mould seems strong and durable. With a height of only 2mm, it can be easily stored also when not in use.
Highs: Made of resistant material. Allows to build either identical or slightly different bricksLows: None noticed.Verdict: An useful addition to a modeller's workshop, as it can produce endless bricks with little effort.

Sometimes I go for specific and rare vehicles, of which only two or three photos are known so it takes me a lot of time to figure how everything w...
