Brian, the badges are made of that lesser known metal "crapite"..


Ah - that be mazak then Chris - or Zamak in the US...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mazak_(alloy)

Very variable stuff also known as shitmetal :-) Hornby Dublo used it for locomotive castings. Because of the ally content a chromate or acid primer is needed prior to painting the topcoat but if that's done and then it's low baked it's a pretty tough finish.

It can be electroplated - but not by me - oh no -that needs someone who knows what they're doing :lol:
