the model is a 1:32 scale He111 from Revell i bought from a guy looking to free up shelf space.

as I await your weathering ideas , i put that thing under the bed....LOL the fresh paint on it is just UNBEARABLE Sleep

oh, i need help especially with the glaring white parts of the decals of crosses, swatiskas and numbers.

The first thing I do for weathering is paint chalking. I mix up some white added to the topside color of the plane, unless it has a camouflage scheme.  In that case I just use white.  I dial the paint flow way back so I can build up a very light tint.  I use this on top of wing and tail surfaces.  Then I shade top of fuselage to match wings, carrying a lighter amount of fading on to the fuselage sides.  This make decal markings look faded too.
