The challenge building a all chrome plated Mustang is that, how do you glue things together.  I had to use a #7 blade and carefully scrape off the chrome in every area that was supposed to be fused.  As for 1/32 Tamiya kits, you can see below a Tamiya 1/32 Zero.  I also built the Spitfire, Corsair, and Mosquito.

Anyway, Here you go!

To me, this is no different than regular paint.  I never trust a glue joint if I do not scrape the paint away, so the use of a metalizer for me entails no extra work. BTW, this thread convinced me to order the kit.  Got the kit the other day, still waiting for some of the third party detail.

Hi Don,

I found this kit to be more enjoyable than the Tamiya kit. I hope you will also. I will say that I don’t think it is cheaper if you add all the detail. I will say that once it is done with those details I would not go back to the Tamiya kit unless I wanted to display the engine and gun bays. I put together the following as a description of what it all included in this build:
