Spotlight Review

"Gives a realistic look"
demarko11j (California)
I recently used this after years of thinking it was hard to do, to my surprise it was simple yet fun. It gives a realistic chrome shine to all models. Get yourself some tweezers, q tips, and fresh hobby knife. Measure a little wider and longer than what your covering. Use the q-tip to lay it down nice and smooth plus it helps it stick. Now just take your hobby knife and gentle trace the lines and peal off access and your done . I really suggest this it brings life into my model cars

"bare metal foil - new improved"
I have used this product for 5 years now, but quit using it to try out the new chrome pen that is on the market. after using the pen, I found I like Bare Metal foil better. it may be slower but the results are well worth it. the cost, ease of using it and the finished look just can't be beat. my latest project was the Revell London double decker bus and I used it exclusively. it works great wherever chrome trim is called for. like I said the only draw back is time, it has to be cut, applied, trimmed, and burnished. but in the model hobby, if you rush and don't take the time, your model shows how much to time you spent on it.

"Beautiful, but can be difficult to use"
skydog (Arizona)
If you are very patient, this product can give you one of the most realistic metal finishes available. It is very, very thin so it shows up every detail in the plastic underneath. It also shows every flaw in the plastic, including sanding scratches. The model must be smooth to about 320-400 grit before the foil will look good on it. Because the foil is very thin, it is also very fragile. It has to be worked down with a light touch until it is well stuck down. Be prepared to peel off and replace some sections until you get the touch. Works best on bare, unprimed plastic. Great for automotive trim, but these very small pieces will add an extra level of frustration until you get it right. Keep at it, though, the results will be well worth it!

"Difficult for beginners, but still unbeatable"
This material is fantastic! Although, it is difficult for beginners, once you get the hang of applying it the finished appearance is unbeatable for achieving that shiny chrome look. Have plenty of Q-tips on hand, as they get shredded pretty quickly during the embossing process. And try to save your scraps, because they can be used again to patch small imperfections in your application.
