I have made some decals but what I think we are after is
chrome badges for 43rd scale cars. These are so small and in silver which as Maz says is near impossible to replicate on the home ink jet printer in my experience. Larger ones such as liveries for trucks are not so impossible. It would be interesting to know how professional decal producers do the chrome and how it is done in such small sizes. Most diecast models have tampo printed badges which I believe is an entirely different process but wouldn't mind seeing how that is done either.
