I am looking for a good tutorial on casting vinyl prototypes - do you fellas have one online? Are there good books? I've done plastic casting in the past but am new to the vinyl stuff.... any suggestions would be great. I'm at 'chringram@yahoo.com'

The best source of information right now is a site called Figure Punk. Sol Nte has produced his own figures and has a pretty nice tutorial, although I don't think actual vinyl prototypes are something you can DIY. At some point you need to get a factory involved. YMMV. :-D

Thanks for the quick response,... I am looking more for the "rotocast mould" process and how-to guide, ... as it's the 'roto' part that I've not done before. Any further thoughts??
