I painted those lines by hand years ago on my Max Grey HO GS-4 and did a pretty fair job!
These days I couldn't do that on the full-size 4449!

Paint the colour onto plain decal film, seal with clear laquer, and cut the strips with a fresh xacto knife.  Apply as decals to your GS.

Show us the photos when you're done.

You could also make them on your computer and print them on decal film (available from Micromark and other suppliers) . I know it sounds like overkill, but some of us don't have that steady of a hand.

Finding a way to print a silver color with a desk top printer will be a challenge.

Microscale sells a decal set of just aluminum stripes, you can cut them from that.  They also sell a solid silver decal sheet.

Betsy is sort of right...that Microscale set (91121) is currently listed as Out of Stock.

BLI when they had the GS4 they were separately applied metal stripes. Maybe contact them and see if they might be available separately.
