I can't for the life of me get that matrix in there, close the flaps, and then close the chest hinges. It always sticks out enough that it will cause the chest not to close properly. Something about the matrix doesn't fit right? Has anyone else had this problem?
I have tried everything... putting the matrix in different ways and what not, it just doesn't close right?
Also, since I tried to squeeze the chest shut, I chipped some of the chrome paint of the vehicle bumper under his chest. What would be the perfect chrome paint to touch that up??? I saw somewhere someone said Tamiya Chrome, but I wanted to know if it was a perfect match?
Thanks in advance for your help!
I know you said you tried fitting it in different ways, but I had that same problem before realizing I'd placed it upside down. Flipped it over, and it went in, no problem.
As for Tamiya Chrome, the best any kind of silver paint will give you is a "brushed metal effect", meaning there won't a mirror finish like the kind you'll find on chrome plating of aluminum.
Metalizers like Alclad II is your only option if you want a chrome-like finish. You'll need an airbrush to apply it, though; these won't work when hand-brushed.
