Price of Chrome Plating

Nowadays, having all those tiny parts chromed nicely might cost over $200 .
I have all the time I need, but will never develop all those skills. Didja see that Supermarine Spitfire model that a guy in the UK made some time back.
It's sad that this kind of artistry doesn't get much public acclaim except from other model builders.

I found the Spitfire pics:
