Creating Chrome on Models with Little More Than Glue and Cheap Aluminum Foil
Most modelers and game crafters, when adding chrome accents to a model, use special products like Bare Metal Foil. This stuff is ridiculously expensive at $14 for a single 6″ x 12″ sheet.
In this video on Custom Scale Models, Brandon shows how you can get the same, some argue even better, results using the cheapest aluminum foil you can find. You can get it at the dollar store.
