Depends, any kit fr. the OVAs especially 08th MS looks better with the
weathered look.

For me if would depend on the colors I used on the rest of the kit. If it's
a colourful Gundam I'd go with the anime style. On the other hand, if
you're going to paint the Kampfer in a nice military blue I'd paint the
thrusters the color of jet aircraft engines (a nice metallic as you
suggested) and then weather with pastels.
