Stale crackers
Hi guys, I am pretty new to the scratchbuilding. I model some small towns in the 1950-1960 period, and was wondering what would be a good substitute for stainless steel. I got my inspiration for this project after seeing an stainless steel covered diner boarded up and rotting away. Anyways, I called the real estate company and asked to see inside. I modeled the building and interior, etc. but I can't figure out what to use for the stainless steel look! Help please?
