How does Smooth-On's Feather Lite urethane resin compare to their Smooth-Cast 300 resin? Answered

I want to cast my original horse sculptures, but since I don't have a roto-cast machine, I'll have to solid-cast the models. I'm a fan of draft horses, so my 1:9 scale horses will be rather large and bulky. This would be heavy if I did a solid-cast with normal resin, which would make shipping prices escalate, so I'm thinking the feather-lite would be a better choice. I'm worried about its ability to replicate fine details, and in the model horse hobby, it's all about the fine details and the quality of the cast.

What is the quality of the resin like compared to their other resins, and how well does it replicate the original sculpt?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Jayefuu and I built one once, we used a very cheap electric drill as the motor.

Making a rotocast machine is really not hard, and will certainly economise on resin use.
