Harry Woodman suggests burnishing on metal foil.

I've done this sucessfully on one model, ot but here it is:

I also tried to do it again recently, on a Sopwith and
failed dismally, I just couldn't do the swirls tiny enough
for the typical Sopwith pattern, so gave up and just polished
the cowling. I'm sure it's possible but just a matter of working 
out a technique. It's something I'm thinking about.
