If you’re going to weather a kit with decals it’s important to weather those decals as well. A scratch or faded decal can add a lot of depth to the look of a kit. For the most part, weathering and stickers don’t work well together as weathering tends to accentuate the sticker’s border.
Welcome to the weathering section of the Layman’s Gunpla Guide. Why a whole separate section?

The good news is that weathering is a lot of fun and accessible for modelers of any skill level.
