I'm doing a Ju 52 and the colours in the top are Schwartzgrün and Dunkelgrün. Both are quite "dark" so I wonder if it's really a good idea to do a weathering with black oil. The surface is corrugated and there are no panels and the colours are dark so I think if I do a weathering with black oil the final result is going to be a surface even darker.
Maybe a postshading here and there with same colours with a pinch of white? Or maybe don't worry about weathering and do some chipping and work with water colour pencils?
Thanks in advance for your piece of advice!

I would mottle it with lighter greys and blacks to give it a worn effect or panel line wash with a deep grey that's lighter than the black possibly

Sergio I have found to use the same colour adding white or yellow gives
the effect I am after. Varying the amount of white in each pass to give
a mixed blend.

Best I find is to practice on a sheet of plastic finished with the base colour
to get it as best as possible. Also I thin right the way down to 40 paint to
60 thinner or as I do Vallejo Flow Improver all at 10 PSI.
