Is this a model or a full size replica? If full size aluminum can be bought in strips that would probably be the right size, or cut as needed.

For a model I'd use chrome tape.

right ive found something...the thin metal foil dishes that pies and take aways sometimes come in

easy to cut and bend but strong enough to hold its shape
