To me , Nothing looks more like metal than metal ... If I had to prime the Aluminum (paint wont last without priming) , color each individual panel to give variations. ect. seems like a lot of work !
Much easier to Dunk the Entire Panels 12"x 15" into "solutions of different strengths, before I even make the parts.
I get variation I need and the weathering in one shot.
If needed your method could be used to blend everything together at the end. More likely...
to cover up my screwups. and go From Scale to Stand way Off.

It may seem to some to be the hard way,
but to me, it seems like the right way.
If the Plane had Painted Panels ...I'd paint them.
If it was just a Model , I wouldn't bother building it from scratch, I'd buy (gulp) an ARF .... kidding

Half the fun of building (for Me) is learning new techniques to achieve the desired results. I'm not in a hurry or pressed to get things done. It's such a relaxing hobby, it takes me about two years to build a Flying Scale Model.

Am going to test the Hydrogen Peroxide ...
