I'm planning on keeping at least the fuselage white (untreated) with stickers, maybe I'll make the wings/stabilizer light grey.
Because then there would be no reason to pay good money for a scale airliner. Scale being the operative word. In reality if it were only the flying characteristics that are desired, an electric glider or non scale foamy would be more suitable.
