I know Optimus Scourge posted this just a few days ago, but I went a step further and removed ALL of the weathering. ALL. I thought it was worth starting another thread. As you can see, the nose is blue. It was BLUE under all of that silver and grey crap! The blue nose is really needed to balance the blue tail. The weathering isn't missed. And the thruster covers look SO nice not being silver. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
