Great job JD. When I was building models , many many moons ago, I never thought to do weathering.  O0

No, neither did I Barth. In fact, the idea of completing a model and putting all that effort into the build and painting only to "ruin" it by covering it in dirt is not only odd, but very counter intuitive.

But once I had taken the plunge, it now seems odd to not weather your models...they just look too perfect.

Then again, "coming off the factory line" doesn't require weathering - so there's the option to leave.

Personally I now prefer the used look.
