Discussion on this new custom work service was talked about around a month ago at Zaku Cebu Zuki Hobby Club. We figured it’s time to tell you guys here that Zaku Cebu Electroplating Services is now available ;)… Later this week, I’ll be posting more kits, but for now we have this as an example. Sieg Zeon!

1. What is Electroplating?
It is a process that uses an electric current to reduce dissolved metal cations so that they form a thin coherent metal coating on an electrode. The term is also used for electrical oxidation of anions on to a solid substrate, as in the formation of silver chloride on silver wire to make silver/silver-chloride electrodes. For Gunpla, extra steps are taken to nickel coat the plastic so that electric charge can conduct onto a non-conductive material. Runners as a whole are then electroplated with end results that make your plastic look like real metal.
2. What kind of plastic kits do you use?
Zaku Cebu will primarily only use Bandai kits for most of our electroplating. For a process like this, Bandai’s plastic composite is more receptable than your typical bootleg plastic. There are exceptions though like kits from Super Nova.
3. Why is the delivery time slow?
Well, the process is time consuming. Think of it like a commission work project.
4. Why is it priced that much?
Aside from the fact that the process is tedious and long, the materials used are uber expensive. On top of that, recycling and waster disposal for the material costs a lot too. This is not your normal typical paint job.
