The paint is a "chrome" spray paint

The super shiny rear panels is a product called BMF - bare metal foil - that is used in model car making to do chrome trim, window surrounds, etc

Very cool. Did you put a wash on it at all? Or just the spray?

How much for the spray?

Thanks Guys

Yes the chrome spray is quite pricey but brilliant for the small jobs it gets used for. I'm in Australia so pricing won't be relative but to give an idea it was about twice the cost of a normal large spray can

Did a black wash over the lot but then a light polishing with a damp cotton wool bud to remove all traces from top surfaces and shine up.

Love it! Thinking of doing the same, although not so sure on the blue stripe. (I mean, yes, I know it's on the base model, already, but...why would a robot paint his ship?? Totally seems to fly in the face of the utilitarian nature of machines, to me...)

I found some metallic spray at Walmart for about $4. I might give it a go.

Actually, I like the stripe. I say leave it. Maybe IG-88 bought it with the stripe? You can also paint the stripe a different color for the next ship. That way you can tell them apart.
