So the only issue was the back face.

It looks like a crack. But what I think happened is the tapered 'disk' type chill blocks have no where to expand to. They are also in really thin sand. So when the chill block started doing its thing and getting hot it expanded, cracking the sand and pushing it into the face that hadnt solidified.

The front did the same looking at the sand mould after the pour but it wasnt on a flat face so it didnt matter.

May look at changing it to more of a boss like the others.
