It does look good but you need to do the chrome trim on your models ;)
yer i do , when i get a finer paint brush i will get round to doin that[/b][/quote]
No, don't do them free hand, buy some Tamiya masking tape, and then after the paint on the body has dried and partly cured, you put the masking tape over the trim parts, then push it on firmly all over the tape, so you can see the trims outlines, then you take a really sharp scalpal and slowly start to run it along where the trim bas is, then when you've finished the whole trim piece you remove the masking tape that is on the trim, then use a smallish paintbrush and paint silver on it, not too much, then pull the masking tape off the body and it should of come out with a clean mask, next time I mask my next model I will send you a few step by step photos so it is easier to understand if you like.

You just described the reverse of using bare metal foil, haven't tried it yet?

You, my friend, are way off base. Bare metal foil is, to be blunt, the SHIT!!! It's real metal, real shiny, and a million times better than silver paint. If you take the trouble to mask all the trim and paint it, you should have no problem using BMF.

As far as directions, check out the model links post, I think my directions are in there somewhere. You have the right idea though.

I can't find BMF around my parts, even at my model shop :uh:
go to a hardware store and get a roll of the chrome tape used for A/C ductwork. its the same stuff. and you get a big ass role for $5 rather than a little ass sheet for $9 ;)
