I purchased these earlier this year from Ignacio Bernácer Alpera in Spain, and did a lot of research on electroplating.  Unfortunately, having this done locally was next to impossible.  In stepped Pascal in the Netherlands.  I shipped the figures to Pascal and he prepped them and had them plated.  Thanks Pascal......

This will be Alan Shepard golfing on the moon....

Scratch built 6 Iron

 

And Gene Cernan, last man on the moon.

Oops! Looks like you haven't paid your Photobucket ransom yet. Too bad, as I haven't seen anyone electroplate anything in over a decade lol.

I didn't like the decals that came with the kits, so I reproduced them in Power Point and printed them out on my HP Inkjet Printer.  You can actually read this under a magnifying glass.

Slow progress with this nice weather we've been having.  It's hard to find time in the shop.

A most impressive build. The effort to get the electro plateing done is well worth it. Yes

They're better than a lot of the displays I've seen at Cape Canaveral and Huntsville. 

They should take first place at any show!!!
