I have seen it mentioned briefly that to add some realism to a body - to give it a 'wash'.

I guess this means a thin wash of a darker colour to add some depth and realism into the shutlines and vents, grilles etc.

Anyone have a link or some piccies of 'how to'?

Thanks

A wash is usually meant to weather an object, dry brushing brings out highlights. There are also weathering chalks that the model railroading fraternity has been using a fair bit (Bragdon Enterprises). Washes are often done with a very diluted india ink solution but you can use almost anything. Just mix up some paint that looks like the colour of road dust and grease, thin it out, alot, and then try it on something.
