Default scaling monokote?

I've came across a .60 tf corsair that I'm getting close to finishing up. I am going to use monokote 'cause I want that extra tensile strength (especially where the skin is thinner than I like) and I would like a two or three tone scheme. Not interested in learning how to fiberglass yet. A friend suggested covering in aluminum and then getting lustercote to get that multi-tone effect. Then the paint on the leading edges and elsewhere could be pick off before the final clear coat, leaving a weathered look. Sounds good in theory but how practical is that?
