Fellow lego fans,

I want to chrome the grey parts of my Naboo N-1 starfighter (7660). Does anybody in this forum have any experience with this kind of work? As you might guess, I want to make it look like the UCS naboo fighter... I was thinking of using Aclad model paint... good idea?

Thanx for your replies in advance,

DutchRebel

I think jims right bricklink would probably be the best option because if the spray painting goes wrong you wont have lost a part that you may one to use at another time.

I've considered that, but it will run around $100 to get the chrome parts.
