Your rusty cowl does look very good. I've used simular techniques using white glue, rubber cement and table salt. I must say the salt seems to work very good for you. The paint has that bubbled look that is very important. I am looking forward to see how you tackle the corroded aluminum.

Here's an idea for you:
Balloon type landing gear wheels for the front axle. Huh? Huh? Huh?

I'd considered wheel discs over the spoke wheels like a WWI fighter, but I'm going with some neat alloy wheels (which I'll weather up a touch) from a WCC diecast motorcycle.
