Yes from what I can see it really is a great looking model and thats why I will do more scale details on it.
What I did on a set of floats before is use krylon gray primer , then Testors Chrome paint and applied scale decals then finish in Tamiya clear spray , that made the chrome turn dull and really look grreat.
This time I want to try my alluminium aircraft speed tape at least under the floats to give it more protection but if it applies well I will do the complete floats
