That wing is very realistic Paul. Got the irregular surface that I think an in-service aircraft would have had. Would love to see you do an entire plane like that.

I have been trying to keep up with this thread, but I may have missed something. Has anyone here tried using the aluminum tape made for duct work? It is pure, dead soft aluminum with a very sticky back. I have had success with embossing it. I bet it will form nicely too.

@ Elliott - Thanks I actually think the same, and yes I guess I will finish the entire model
@ Ken - Yes, in the search for a good aluminium I saw this tape its almost the same thickness and the best of all it already have glue on it, I will try the other wing with this duct tape.

Works pretty well for me. I like to scour it lightly with very fine steel wool, and adhere it to 20lb copy paper. It can be unforgiving - you'll want to make sure your work surface is nice and clean or else every little little bump and bit will leave a reminder - but with a little care it will yield a nice result.

I'm a little disappointed with the engine hood here: I made the mistake of edge-coloring the paper backing of the aluminum parts a medium grey and it really shows. Uncolored white paper edges produce less noticeable seams, as you can see on the cheeks.

Well I have done a test with the aluminium tape and yes, the finished its very good, in my opinion this is the best technique for a real aluminium, I will do the rest of the model with this tape.

regards
