Hi!

I'm wondering if there are any concerns with hollowing out my silver model. (see pic). It's about 5 centimetres high..

That might give the casters a fit. Removing the plaster casting investment from the hollow would be difficult, maybe impossible. Maybe better to just pocket out the tree base and go maybe 1cm up into the tree trunk.
