Have you seen this thread!!
Here-:http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=444481
It has hundreds, if not thousands of warbirds (some weathered and some not).
It really not worth having two threads with the same planes in it!!

Here are some photos of my Alfa Fw190A. There's some discussion of the techniques I used starting on THIS PAGE of the Alfa Model Appreciation Thread. I haven't tried it yet, but I think some of the methods are also applicable to EPO airframes.

Here is my Warbirdkits.com Ki-43 Oscar. Great flying warbird.


Sorry about the big pics. I used a combination of the salt method and rubber cement to do the chipping/peeling and various washes of yellow and gray to get the faded look.

Here is my Kyosho AiRium Messerschmitt Bf 109 E. I use waterproof marking pen, pencil, coloured pencils and Humbrol polished aluminium paint with this weathered job. Photos are taken two years ago, nova days the tail wheel and nose guns are also coloured in black.
