Yeah but Litho plate is a lot thicker and heavier. Donny you could use a sharpened tube to simulate flush rivets in the Aerofoil after covering. I would test both methods on a piece of scrap balsa to see what works best for you.

Yes it is. I meant it tongue and cheek since the one I was referring to is also something like 1/4 scale.

Litho plate isn't easy to find around here. I wanted to try it out but no luck on getting some. I have done a lot of testing on samples of aluminum and such with varying amounts of success.

I looked for pics but couldn't find them.
