The previous post showed the plastic prototype links with just a quick coat of silver paint. I took another link and sanded and filed it a bit to make it closer to the design finish. Then a sprayed a lot of paint on it to help fill in the grooves (which are artifacts from the prototype creation process).
This gives you a better idea of how the links will look. For comparison, I placed the smoothed link together with the raw ones from yesterday's post. Now the "ridge" on the link is more visible.
