markp,

you'll have a lot better luck getting this answered in either the painting or ship building sections, try moviing it there. You'll also have better luck if you start a new thread to post your question. The hobby shop owner may have been referring to a couple of things. 1: clean the model before painting, to get fingerprints, dirt, mold release agents off the plastic (for better paint adhesion, smoother coat, etc.). 2: A highly thinned dark pigmented paint is often used to enhance detail, simulate wear. 3: maybe there's a special meaning of wash as it applies to ship building, but I don't know.

Welcome aboard! Sign - Welcome [#welcome]

There is not one right now, but you are more than welcome to start one. As Pixilater posted earlier, starting one in the General Modeling forum would be a good spot.

Welcome to the forum, cote1995 !

Your "rank" increases with the number of posts.

For your special interest group, I'd suggest posting it under the "General Modeling" page.

Hope this helps, and have fun here !
