Came across another method of Forming Depron with Hot Water, click the t/n for the video.

Already in the PMFC Technical aricles there are two other methods.
Click for John Pictons version from 2012 and then from Portugal.

I have also tried, using very low heat, "baking" round a mould in the oven. With a method using hot water you will not get above boiling, whilst with anything in the oven things can get out of control.

16th February
The Vulcan to the Sky Trust have just released an excellent air to air video of XH558. Click the picture for some quality filming.
