A note from The Block Zone team
Since 2018 we have been fascinated about the concept of a fully chromed model, something that would truly stand out and a unique finish that no other manufacturer has been able to perfect.
Why is it so difficult? There are three main issues with producing chrome parts. The first is that it's incredibly hard to chrome plate any plastic part. The second is that the chrome must be applied in such a way that it will be relatively resistant to scratches and will not rub off during the assembly process (or while handling). The third is that when adding a layer of chrome on a standard part, the part size thickens. This can cause issues during assembly with parts not fitting together correctly and not holding together.
How did we manage? Over the past 4+ years we've spent more time than we'd ever publicly admit on this project. Tens of trials, tens of suppliers and hundreds of failed batches. We are now working closely with a factory who is able to apply a very thin, wear resistant layer of chrome to plastic parts without affecting their functionality. We were in genuine awe when we received the first batch, we couldn't believe how perfectly this was executed.
What's with the limited availability? The process of plating the parts is incredibly time intensive. Realistically we probably won't be able to produce more than 20 units per month of any fully chrome model (at least for the foreseeable future). With that in mind, we will be reaching out to our VIP members first with a dedicated invite. The remaining units will be offered to all customers on a first come first serve basis.
This has been a long-standing project, one that has been very close to our hearts and a true ambition we've had for years. We're incredibly proud to say that we have finally achieved what we set out to accomplish and we're incredibly proud and excited to be able to offer this model to you, a world first.
Important Information About Chrome Parts
Just to get one thing out of the way: We know, the gold model pictured has a couple of green parts. Sorry about that, they weren't all ready yet when taking the photo. All parts for the gold version will be gold.
The parts are all individually checked before being packed to ensure all surfaces that will be on the outside of the model when fully assembled are immaculate. Some light microscratches may occur during shipping (although highly unlikely), however nothing deep and nothing that will stand out when the model is assembled. This is one of the key differences between these chrome parts and any other chrome part available anywhere - improved scratch resistance.
The parts are fully chrome plated on exterior surfaces (all surfaces that will be visible when the model is assembled). Some parts are not chrome plated on interior sections (where pins/axles slide in) or on rear surfaces (where it won't be visible). This is normal and intentional to preserve functionality and reduce part interference, it is not a defect.
There may be slight color variation from part to part due to the variation in the original part material and original part color. This is normal, very slight and should only be noticeable when unpacking the parts. Once the model is assembled nothing will stand out due to color mismatch. Our model images are original, unedited images of the finished model so you can see the true results.
Please assemble the model with care. Do not bend any chrome parts as cracks may form. Do not use any cleaning products on the parts, soft cloths only.
You will receive the complete original model in white as well as a full chrome part pack. The chrome parts will replace the exterior white parts. When the manual asks for a white part on the exterior, use one of your chrome parts instead.
