Guys would appreciate some feedback on the before and after pictures (i.e. after the model has been diritied a bit), Do you think it looks the part as in war weary/well worked aircraft or does the weathering look artificial?

"Weather" it looks real or not, is pure perception. I think it's fine. BTW how is it as a flier?

One thing I learnt from Mike was how important weathering is in scale modeling. He was explaining how he did it on his latest model.  It does add a great sense of realism and a rustic feeling (for lack of a better word) to the model.

@ Susheel,
Nice flyer, Havent done any aerobatics yet as the wing fixing method does not inspire any confidence.
Both the wings slide on a carbon tube and are  plugged  into fuse cavity. I shudder to think what if... I pull a loop or roll ?
Thinking of modifying by making the wings attach permanently or by using velcro strips. Not yet decided

My own perception about the weathering which I did is that, it's too symmetrical to look authentic

How are they "plugged"? This would be the only area of concern, I would think, as the rest is pretty normal. Also, planes like these are very lightly loaded, in all manners of speaking.

Plugged as in just pushed in no means of fixing so that the wing halves do not slide out. Especially given the nature of foam to compress I am afraid that the after some time the friction fit would be lost. And I do not want that to happen mid air

I have seen magnets help in this situation, if I understand this correctly.

Yes Anwar that should also work, think will try out velcro first (readily availble in my spares bin)
