Just note I have no affilation with this company....  But am growing more fond of it's paints every day.  I'll be giving up MRP lacquers as the bottles empty...

FYI...  I read somewhere that this chrome is much more durable than Molotov.

Can you mask over it, or even dare go near it? 
 

This is a direct quote from the bloke that makes the stuff:  "if your surface prep is good, should be fine but is best to mask everything else and spray the chrome on top rather than mask the chrome and paint around it."

 

Also...  FYI I've read you want to use a water-based clear over it to avoid dulling.

Hey Gazza,

so that sounds like a no then to me - the above is fine for small bits, but for full on NMF i guess it's quite limiting in terms of the order in which you have to do things

I'll stick to MRP until someone comes up with the miracle paint :)

but thank you anyway

kind regards

Nick

I’m still not so sure what the issue is on masking over Alclad or AK .... I do it all the time and almost never have had any of the NMF lift or stain. If some does lift, it was the base and primer that lifted off the plastic. I’m careful to only mask with de-tacked Tamiya tape and care needs to be used when removing the tape: never pull the tape straight up or even up but rather back on itself. 
Of course when I mask over my P-51, the gremlins might just bite.

Keep ‘em comin

Peter
