I'm a big fan of weathering. I prefer a used look..to sometimes a downright abused look..it all depends..do you want a museum look..or a raced and put away dirty look. This weekend at the Greenwich concourse I saw a perfect Mercedes gullwing...and next to it an unrestored one with chipped and cracked paint, beat up interior..it was a racecar. I liked it better..Hell I would drive that one while being terrified to drive the museum one. Up to you. Military models always look better with lots of weathering, cars and bikes too.
