Metal is one of the hardest colors to print, first because it's not a color but a group of similar colors arranged into very small lines, and second, when polished, you are only seen half of the color, the other half is the reflex of the environment. Here is a picture where you can see the sky and the horizont reflected on the front of the plane. Flight simulator has a special layer of texture called alpha channel to work that, but we paper modelers need to do miracles, and you plane looks good

May I make a suggestion? The gluing strips are now green. That means that even the smallest misfit will show up paifully. Wouln't a copy of the coloring of the neighbouring part be a better idea?!

you are totally right .. the only reason for those parts being green is to be easily recognizable
