    Too much work.

    I'd suggest you apply the silver/metalic weathered areas with a sponge tip using Testors Chrome spraypaint mixed w/ a small amount ot thinner to thin it out, the grey weathered spots using a thin acrylic based paint thinned with water.

    The effect looks great, and you won't have to bother with lots of unnecessary masking.

    Heres a thread that details what motorfish has explained in more detail, by motorfish in the past. Its located at the bottom of the page but the pictures no longer load. If your a member of the other prop board you might find it there. the link is still noted. After seeing his work on ebay and TDH this is the route Im going. Strong work on your prop MF.
