Here are some examples of recent work with the my friend in the chroming industry from my collection. The results pretty much speak for themselves. I have compared them to Tamiya and other's and they are simply better. I am delighted with the way they work out. The plating (metallisation) is thicker than Tamiya's and also less brittle as a result. The colour is also deeper because of this. Another thing that helps reduce chipping is the combination of a quality mirror finish/lacquer and plating around the whole wheel. Tamiya (and other manufacturers) plate just the main visible surface, which can lead to chipping around the edges of the moulded plastic, as anyone who has lost sleep after chipping $120 worth of vintage supershot wheels knows!
I know nothing about photography, so this time I used a really good camera and lens and took my wife's advice, to show it against a contrasting item. The piano seemed like a good idea, with black, white and gold/brass in it. I wasn't trying to be arty.
