Idea for engine cowl

I was eating a Dole fruit cup and thought the plastic cup might make a cool engine cowl for a scratch build plane, it is about 3 1/8" outside dia. and just under 2" tall, it is pretty heavy plastic for a throw away. the front looks like a gear, should look good painted. It does unforntunly say Dole around it.

Depending on the size of the motor, another option is to use the top cover of a spray can. You might even match the color of your plane.
