    Reference moulding the lead.
    Lay some polythene where the lead will be then form the lead shape on the poly using plasticine.
    Then use mould making silicone (ebay) to form a mould.
    Use something like a baked bean tin and a blow torch to heat the lead and pore it into the mould.
    Normal health and safety rules apply.

    I haven't done a great deal to the happy hunter over the last months but the superstructure and masts are almost finished.I want to get the ballast in it next .I,ve got 2 -6 volt batteries in and tried about 1kg of lead at each end -this isn't enough .I would welcome thoughts on what weight will be needed in addition to the batteries -I,m thinking a total of 4kg.Also any ideas on getting the lead moulded to the right shape for the bottom of the hull would be appreciated
