Modelhaus question

2 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I have the reissue of the AMT '63 Galaxie I am building, and there are HEAVY mold lines on the front and rear bumpers. I have no way of rechroming these bumpers after removing the mold lines, and it seems it would be just as cost effective to order them already chromed from Modelhaus as it would be to send mine out to Chrome-Tech for replating..

my question is this: will the chromes bumpers from the modelhaus have that mold seams removed before they were chromed??

I have some Modelhaus 63 Bonneville bumpers, and they DO NOT have the mold lines removed, and you can even see where they were twisted from the sprue before casting(probably 40 years ago), can't say the same about their Galaxie bumpers though as I've never seen them. It might cost a bit more, but for my money I would set up a sprue per Chrometech's guidelines, load it up with cleaned up parts and send it out. Just my 2 cents, but I have lots of stuff I would like to get chromed too.
