Cincinnati chili like Skyline is pretty good and is unlike any other chili because of the spices, such as a touch of cloves and cinnamon. Vietti isn't bad. For canned Texas chili, the real deal is Wolf Brand, and the best Southwestern chili is what I make. For any canned or frozen chili, it helps to brown some fresh stew beef and add it to the pot (ground beef alone doesn't cut it).
Even if you don't intend to build it, (a) it's not very rare and isn't an investment -- and if you want to sell it, you need to vouch for the box contents, and (b) if you want to build it, don't you want to know what's in there? Personally, I'll never buy an older sealed kit.
Your photo of the window decal is nice and sharp, but it looks like it's shot at an angle; If you can get a straight-on shot of the decal with no perspective (shoot from a slightly higher angle), you can print it out to scale on white decal paper.
This was discussed this morning on Hoda & Kathie Lee, where they looked at substitute products. Most of them weren't chrome-like at all, but they showed Jamberry Nail Wraps, which looks like strips of BMF. Has to be cut to shape; $15/sheet.
This must all seem like small change to a Pocher builder 😄 As for kits, I've spent $125 for the 1/12 Revell re-box of Renwal's Ferrari 275 GTB (BAD move -- the kit is totally inaccurate junk), but I've spent multiples of that for research books and manuals.
