The weathering on the Albatros was actually a color in the Windsor Newton 
oil colour line called Naples Yellow.  It did come out a lot more in the 
photos where the flash was used.  In person, its a much more subdued fading 
look.  The color is perfect for rubbing into the surface to lighten it up 
without being as harsh as white.  It works on any base color too.  It was 
used pretty heavily on the SE5 just posted in my section.
