Try a product called "Bare Metal Foil" - it's self adhesive. I use it for my 1/24 police cruisers & fire apparatus.

Tin foil trimmed to shape and some superglue works for me...........n/m January 16 2005, 4:42 PM

I seen pictures of kits that use the silver mylar that comes on some brands of breakfast bars and candy bars. Very thin and reflective.

Agree Mylar from any candy or if in UK crisp pkt works great !!!
I used this in car modelling before I found Bare Metal foil & has major advantages - It's free & available everywhere
Bare Metal scores when you have chrome trim to simulate
