I like the fact that the paint fading doesn't just follow the panels. Real paint fades differentially based on more than just the panel lines: how well the paint was mixed, how thickly it was applied at each point of a surface, what areas were subject to environmental damage, temperatures under the surface (engines, etc.), sun angle, etc.
