Default I wonder

I wonder if any manufacturers ever thought about making a model thats in service with all the stains and markings. In model trains the most sought after are the weathered cars. We have flaps down now, how about a weathered stained plane?

Hello. I think before we think about that, we need manufacturers to be more consistent concerning their acciracy. Just to speak for me: I am annoyed by crooked window-/cheatlines everytime I see one - same goes for too-high printed cheatlines or crooked cockpits. So imagine having a weathered model with one or more of these issues....NO thank you!

You also need another level of detail to recreate all the seams on the aircraft models fuselages. To me such details make sense beyond scale 1/144.

I'm sure it will be done eventually, and I would imagine it'd require a level of detail that might require special tools, etc. I feel each of the manufacturers have more pressing issues of their own to iron out first, but I can totally see one of them pulling this off.

There are already lots of customs out there with this weathering effect, so it's def possible. I for one would be totally on board for this though!

A good example what is NOT needed on the market - a manufacturer not able to see the signs of time realizing that his product is substandard, which will become obvious once more when NG will release a 727 mould in 1/200. At the meantime three manufacturers sre using the Gemini200 727 mould - honestly, who still needs the Inflight mould.?

As to the weathering - I'd more see retractable undercarriages comming. Which would be a good addition to the extended flaps models.

I have a Socatec Airfrance 727 with some sort of "precise" weathering/exhaust stains, I think. You be the judge.

Having worked in and around dirty 727's, Inflight's version of weathered isn't worth the paint they applied to it.
Looks like they put reverse exhaust stains on a factory fresh aircraft, the stains are way too harsh, and the #2 reverse exhaust doesn't blow on the rudder, but to the sides. I also wonder if they put any APU exhaust stains on the other side. In short as a 727 weathered there are leaks and stains all over the place, the tail section is always dirty.

I know this is only a drawing, lets wait and see, then complain.
