I've looked into this product more by searching on this forum and elsewhere and I plan to order some through scalefinishes.com Judging by photos, It seems to have the potential to be as good or nearly as good as Alclad, and much better than any spray chrome. In fact, some of the results, like those from Art Anderson and the C1 website are amazingly good.
Has anyone here ever used C1 buffing metalizer powder? c1-models.com - I'm curious to try it. I wonder if this may be an option. I think there may have been a mention in Model Cars Mag sometime recently in the new products area.
I haven't noticed that with my missing link kit (still in the box) but I haven't looked for that issue. I will check. Still a fantastic kit of a really neat subject. The ultimate one, though, would be the 75-78 LTD wagon - Standard or country squire.
Does the 3D printed surface have a slight grain to it? Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think I remember reading that the surface needs to be really smooth for Alclad just like chrome plating. I haven't used Alclad yet, but I have some along with an airbrush I haven't used either. I really need to just jump in and try it. I really hope the project works out well for you.
