The only one I am aware of is a Replicas & Miniatures Detail Set with photo etch. Part no # RM-57 Its not listed in Norms' latest catalogue and I have never seen one so I can't comment on what it contained.
I've always felt that its good business practice for any company to acknowledge that they have received your order. I just placed an order with Modelhaus and immediatley got an email to say they had recieved it and to allow 4 to 12 weeks for delivery. I now know its in their system and I'm not left hanging wondering what is going on
Thats a good point Art. The ' chrome ' sprues that come in our kits are a completely different to real chromed metal. All these Metalizers and Alclad, Spaz Stix ect give us a good range of products to play with and allow us to achieve a variety of different finishes.
I used Tamiya enamel as a base on that test and I have tried these metalizers over lacquer and 2K clear coat all with the same result. These metalizers look like powdered pencil in their containers which I think is why they come out like they do. If you look at the result they give by themself on a mirror smooth surface they look great with a chrome refection. Its when you compare them side by side with kit chrome that you see a stark contrast. I think these metalizers can have a lot of different uses but I don't see them as a way of refurbishing kit chrome that is damaged or worn.
This is the chrome sprue from Revells' 50 Ford F1. To the left is how it came out of the box and on the right half I sprayed it with Tamiya X13 Enamel Metallic blue then applied C1 Models Metalizer. I get the same result with Kosutte Ginsan and changing the base color will only alter the color of the tint slightly. I can never get anything other than a dark chrome look
