    Chrome Finish Methods?
    I have utilized Alclad, Bare Metal Foil, Testers Chrome Paint and chrome plating for producing a chrome finish. Has anyone used anything else that produces a realistic chrome finish for styrene and or resin?

    Two Tone painting of resin Mack 6 spoke wheels
    Hi Guys

    New to truck modeling. Recently purchased a resin kit with Mack 6 spoke wheels. I want to two-tone these wheels (painting the rims one color and the inner wheel Mack "spiders"/spokes another). The Mack "spiders"/spokes are attached to the outer rims. Might anyone have suggestions for doing this other than spraying the entire rim and "spiders/spokes" and finishing with brush painting. Thanks.

    Kudos to Dave Natale at American Industrial Truck Models. I ordered my first resin truck model from AI Truck Models and was quite impressed. The quality of resin and parts received was excellent. The turn around time was phenomenal! I talked with Dave on the phone and he was very courteous and helpful. Will not hesitate to do business with him again.

    Great job so far. Checking out one of the engine pics, I noticed a blow bye line leading to what looks like an old coffee can for a "puke can"? Might you plan on the detailing the engine like this? Am still anxious to hear what color/paint you are going to utilize. Keep up the good work.
