Chrome metal finish

Good day:

I was turned onto a new product called Molotow Chrome.  This is in the form of a marking pen with a wide applicator of about 1.4 inch.  They also produce them in smaller widths as well.

The chrome is applied as any other product from a marking pen but it needs 24 hours to cure in a dust-free environment and must be covered with Pledge floor polish after curing time.

Look closely at the second photo and you can easily see a drip. This is because I didn't know how to apply it the first time.  It goes on very smoothly and needs no overlap.  No need for a second coat, which resulted in that blob you see.

However, it will yield an incredible finish that will rival even Flite Metal aluminum foil.  It is truly remarkable and must be seen to believe.

As a trial, I applied the Molotow to the inside of a plastic fuselage of a Mustang as can be seen in the second photo.

The last picture shows the various sizes you can obtain if you decide to purchase in package form;

It is easily available through Amazon.  Or direct through their website of the same name.  If that doesn't work, try

You can apply it to compound curves or to landing struts that need the chrome to be seen between oleos, and even over the whole model. 

The last picture shows a model of a P-47 in 1/48th scale finished with the Molotow Chrome.  I realize its a bit small, but it's the best I can do for now.
