Would be even better if small acme, or square thread screws were readily available.

Ingenious! I love it when other modelers come up with great ideas for tools or techniques that are simple enough for me to grasp...and steal :-)

I made a scraper by finding a machine screw with the right thread, then filing off opposite sides to leave a flat 'blade' with corrugations down each edge.
IIRC I used it to scratch (literally)-build a tailplane for my Pegasus D.I

Yes – I have tried making a “corrugation scraper” specific to a model, so that I could make matching areas of a mod.

I used some epoxy to make a shape, then file a small bit of metal to match.

But it didn’t work too well.  But that may have been me being ham-fisted.

I’ve built the Roden Junkers (http://www.wwi-models.org/Images/Duckworth/CP/index.html<https://nam02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wwi-models.org%2FImages%2FDuckworth%2FCP%2Findex.html&data=02%7C01%7Cnicklasb%40si.edu%7C66a7610aec97413f97dc08d7ca8d5c71%7C989b5e2a14e44efe93b78cdd5fc5d11c%7C0%7C0%7C637200580810494868&sdata=%2By02ODAa0ayDHCWEtWc7OfstJdzfhM%2FhiacN7mRjY34%3D&reserved=0>) and agree it’s a quick, easy built.  The decals were a bear to get to say down but several applications of Walthers Solvaset solved the problem. Wish they’d done to two-seat version too.

Yes, one of those iconic aircraft but as they have corrugated skin very difficult to convert and kitbash.

 So stay tooned!

T-t-t-that's all folks!
