Model Painting tip request


I have a couple of old AMT 3-ship Enterprise packs which contain the star ships Enterprise TOS through E. The ships range in size from 2 to 10 inches or there about. The reason they have remained unassembled is because I am a horrible painter. So, they have remained packed away for some 8 years or so.

Anyway, after cleaning out some things, I ran across them again, and thought it might be a good idea to finally assemble them. I decided that the easiest way to paint them is maybe a gold color, like Star Trek FC. The only gold paint I have come across so far at the Ace hardware store doesn't produce a "gold chrome" finish like in FC, just a gold semi metallic flake finish.

I was wondering if anyone has done something similar and if they were able to find a "gold chrome" finish paint, or am I stuck with the gold semi metallic flake?
