Do It Yourself Chrome LEGO

Post  Cale on Wed Aug 24, 2011 12:04 am

For those of you out there looking for a way to get some parts in chrome here is some ting that may be of some interest.

http://www.alclad2.com/index.html

I've never tried any Alclad paints from them but I've heard some good stories from the model railroad guys. So is any one interested in testing some?

We would need an airbrush. Anyone have one? Anyone know how to use one?

I have an airbrush and while I'm probably pretty rusty I can use it just in case some one wants to give this a try.

I would possibly be interested, as I'll probably mainly be making vehicles for awhile. I know I want to make more tuckers with chrome, but I don't want to spend the exorbitant amount of money to do it from chromebricks. I think over $20 of chromed bricks went into that car.

Well I think I may need to track some down then and try it. I want to test out the aluminum and I'll try the chrome too. Now to find a place that sells it.

That is just Paint... That will not hold up very well and will scratch and wear...

We had a 95% reflective paint very similar to that at the shop and it was crap...
