Great tutorial.

You used several shades of blue during the process; is this because you were weathering a blue model?

What if the model was a different color, let's say yellow?

I used different shades of blue to try and duplicate fading and weathering of the oringinal blue paint job. If you wanted to use on another base color like yellow I think you would use the same proses .start with the yellow and then lighten it up or dilute the yellow as you go to replicate a sun/ weather beaten paint job.
