I really hate gold-plated parts on LGB products. They are too shiny and look like toys. I tried to apply metal colour paint over the plating, but it came out too easily. I found a way to remove plating from plastic on some web site while ago. I will introduce the method.


Simply immerse the plated parts in undiluted breach fluid. The plating will be dissolved in 5 minutes or so. Then wash the parts thoroughly.


Plating is completely removed.


I applied Gunze Metal Colour (Brass) on the parts. They seem much better now.
