Pinked Tapes on a WW1 war bird would have driven Dan San crazy  ::)

I pulled this from Ray Rimell's ongoing Facebook review of the Strutter Kit. This is a quote taken from the middle of his paragraph:

" Wings are well detailed-the riblets are fine, but the soft main rib detail will need emphasis by decal or thin tape strips."

It looks like Decals or Tape are the easiest answer.
