Another Method

Mike sent in this incredible You Tube link which describes the Kosutte Ginsan (translated: Magic Powder) application. Video was made by Kibo (Gomenchaii) who really does a great job showing another metallizing technique that looks too easy to be true! Enjoy!

Here is their response (11-10-10) to my inquiry on availability:

Hi Steve,

Thank you for writing in.

We are currently waiting for a restock of that item right now, although it's been over 60 days since we put in the order.

 We have no information from our distributors when restock orders will be filled, so we're in the same boat as our customers! We hope it will be soon, as we get a lot of requests for this product. 

 Thank you for shopping at HobbyLink Japan! We appreciate your business!

 Best Regards, 

 Brian Keaney

And yet another Method

This method comes from Eastern Suburbs Scale Modeling's Peter McKinnon. This link explains how to brush on Testors Model Master Buffing Metalizer and or Gunze Sangyo Mr. Metal color rather than airbrush it. The effect is amazing and really worth a look!
