It looks like carved cork.

I mean on the outside, to smooth out the joints and petals! Inside looks indeed like cork.

I use the acrylic putty by Wamod. It's a really good product.
After you apply it, leave the puttied elements to dry for at least 24 hours. Then you can smoothen them with some sandpaper.

This is the last update before the end.
I'll write a longer comment when the model is fully finished.

After many difficulties with the model, I managed to finish it.
The final result is not entirely satisfactory to me, mainly due to the inaccuracy of the kit itself. The instruction is fuzzy, you have to guess many things. The individual elements of the model have drawing errors. These things can be very discouraging for beginners. I would only recommend this Heinkel to model builders with a little more experience.
I’ve built models from different publishers, better and worse, and I think this case is ultimately mediocre.

Despite the problems that you ran into, it's a great looking model. You did an excellent job.
