I've had mine for about a month,I'm using the 1mm version for touching up chrome parts after they've been cut from the parts tree, looks like it's been chrome plated, it's that good

I got a chrome marker today with a bit of help from Geoff.

It's actually really good,I took a pic but I can't really capture it with the lack of daylight.

In person it looks just like chrome, I'll try another pic in daylight tomorrow.

It's as easy to use as the old Tamiya paint markers.

I ordered a 4mm version and it arrived to-day........... gotta say it's BRILLIANT!!!!! Going to order 1mm and 2mm also.  

Remember trying to cover up the attachment points on the ends of Revell USA bumpers? Silver paint!! Tiny pieces of BMF that don't want to stick. Stripping and painting with Alclad!!!!

Ditch them all... get one of these and you will never regret it.

I have to try this sometime...been using silver paint to touch up stuff for years now. Doing restorations on old ones it sounds very handy.

Invest in one Mark, the supplies are already running low, the refills are sold out so I hear from Geoff.

They never realised a whole load of model building lunatics were a market for them, I'm sure the Sales Director is surprised.

It really is like magic, you won't believe it.

I need to as soon as I can afford to...looks awesome to me. After watching that video...great now I need to get a airbrush and compressor and learn how to use one right....LOL.. I can see where this product would be a major plus one restoring the old models and promos I do. One more thing on my wish list...LOL..

Just the marker pen is all you need Mark, even though the video is fantastic, thanks Gary.

I saw over on MCM that it's actually available as a rattle can too, at least in Germany at the moment, I don't know if the Donald has an executive order signed for it yet, so you might not be able to get it over there Mark

Sorry Mark, didn't mean to mislead you, Al is right you can just use the pen, I posted the video just out of interest.

I have no knowledge what the rattle can is like Mark, it's worth getting the 4mm pen.

Especially as all your old stuff has chrome trim, you can mask off and use it too.

Id be willing to bet the rattle cans work well too under the right temp and conditions just like any other paint. Yeah a small pen one would be great for doing trim work and little touch ups with. I have been doing them for years with just silver paint and a tooth pick or other small pointed tool. Many old models/promos have worn plating and some bumpers need bodywork then they need replated or..? Ether way it sounds good to me buddy...been waiting for a product like this for many years. I never liked Alcad it can tend to rub off while handling things.
