Chrome Plating by Little Model Car Company
Posted by Camarocook on Tuesday, August 13, 2019 9:39 AM

Attention Modelers.  I recently had some model parts chrome plated by the Little Model Car Company and I'm very disappointed. After complaining about the poor results the reply I received was, "We are not in the habit of redoing parts that were part of a customer mounted rack. There are too many variables to be considered that cases less that a satisfactory outcome." From what I understand about plastic plating a coating must first be applied to the plastic. That coating they applied made some of the chrome look distorted, wavy and blotched.  I followed their instructions to the letter concerning mounting the parts. Some of the parts I submitted were not mounted and the plating was still bad. It's a lame excuse for poor quality. After paying nearly $60 I'm far from being satisfied. Don't waste your money with Little Model Car Company. Pass them by.

If you can't be honest in the business you're in, you're in the wrong business
