"The NEW & IMPROVED B M F......"
Olesmoothie
I have been using B M F (Bare Metal Foil) since it was 1st introduced, in the 70's I think, and have my share of horror stories about it through the years. Some of the issues included things like the foil ripping trying to get it removed from the backing sheet, curling onto itself before you can get it in place on the model and also the lack of adhesion on the model are the most common ones. FAST FORWARD a few decades, and what a difference. The new & improved sheets are several leaps forward to the old stuff. It, most defenatley adheres better. There is, however, some things to consider when using it. 1st,& foremost is to get your mind into the game and have a clean & organized work space. Remember, THIS FOIL IS EXTREMLEY THIN AND REQUIRES A LIGHT TOUCH!!!!!! A couple tips I have for usage is naturally several NEW #11 blades, more times than not I will use the blades WITHOUT the knife handle, some toothpicks with the ends sanded smooth and rounded to burnish the foil into tight spaces. Last but not least is, after you have it in place, burnished down and are satisfied with the results, dip a new Q-Tip into some alcohol and wipe the foil off before the final trimming. I hope this review will help the newer people to the hobby to try & enjoy using BARE METAL FOIL..... ps. having some good old rock & roll on the stereo isn't a bad idea either.....

"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

 
"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!

 
"bare metal foil - new improved"
mbressman0877
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.
