I know that most of you guys use the bare metal, what is your technique, i've heard of some people putting it on before paint. Using thinner to remove the paint from over the foil.



I was also wondering if anybody has ever used gold leaf or silver leaf on their models, if so pictures would be nice...

It seems to me that most people here use Chrometech for chrome plated parts. Im too new to modeling so i have no idea what the prossess is. I think using BMF might mainly be used for window trim and stuff like that.

On the chrome you can go to any hardware store and get the Ducting tape, it works just as good and looks just as good.
