This Company produced different kinds of moulds which are not very common. Below is show one of there molds for flats. These are very detailed and a bit harder to cast. Made of aluminum for 30mm soldiers. Each mold is numbered.


Prandel also made heavy aluminum moulds for casting round figures, shown below. These are a little larger 50mm size casts. Very easy to recognize by the dents on the outside and the large fixation points on the inside. Also less commonly sold.
