Default Rub 'n Buff?

Just wondering, does anyone here use Rub 'n Buff for that aluminum look on aircraft models?

I just picked up a Revell Convair 990 kit from a local auction site. Thing has to be over 30 years old as the kit was manufactured in New Zealand (and that ain't happened for at least 30 years).
Assembly instructions are copyright 1964...

Only missing one tail plane (horizontal stabilizer?) which I can fabricate easily enough.

Kit comes with Swissair decals, still in good condition and usable by the look of them.

Just wondering whether Rub 'n Buff is good enough to replicate this look:

or should I perhaps finish it as a NASA plane, all gray and off-white with airbrushed markings?
