I experimented by covering an FMS Mustang in silver vinyl to cover the foam texture. Unfortunately, the texture showed through. For fun fly kits, it's fine but for scale projects, it's a huge amount of work with mediocre results.

Instead, I opted for a thin adhesive aluminum and added it panel by panel. The texture does need a thin fiberglass layer to harden the surface with a total weight penalty of around ~7oz.
