Hi Les here. A scratch build I am going to do is of a modern sailing ketch. As with modern sailing vessels all fittings are chrome, deck items are clear coated and lines are polyester etc. If I cannot get the correct scale fittings in something chrome or brittania metal that I could chrome with All Clad, would it be acceptable to build all fittings in wood and gloss coat them. Any info would be good.

Les,

Whatever works for you, is what I would say.   You could also use silver paint instead of All Clad and then gloss coat them.
