I'm not sure what you want. I think your model of the thermodynamics of iron and chromium reactions is adequate. You could add equilibrium with Cr_hydroxide and Fe(OH)3(a) to simulate the formation of the precipitates. As far as the lower concentrations of Cr taking more Fe, I can't think of any reason that should happen thermodynamically. Perhaps it is a kinetic phenomenon at the electrode.
