Purchasing of lead mouldings

Dear Sir,

I was interested in purchasing some mouldings to make lead soldiers.

...............try "moulds" rather than "mouldings", and try "Prince August" a company in Eire who specialise in home casting, lead-soldier kits.

Best wishes............John Tunstill


When I was younger my father melted down some lead for my brother who had some mouldings and cast them into various soldiers. As the years went by I have not seen these mouldings anywhere and therefore I wish to pick your brains so to speak.

As I acquire small amounts of lead through working in the building trade I though it may be possible to still purchase the mouldings and still cast and paint these fine items.

I cannot see reference to any mouldings on any web site and although lead is an expensive metal it would be a shame to hold onto off cuts of lead just for some scrap value rather than to create some interesting items for future family to enjoy.

I hope to hear from you in the near future.

Kindest Regards

Mr S.Oakman
