Just came to this post. Not to late I hope. I have used the Vallejo set and the Ak weathering set on buildings for my sons model railway. It needs a little practice. An airbrush is recommended. There is also a small book by Ak about wood weathering.

Thank you for the answer, i bought the book and the sets also the washes that they recommend in the book but the truth is i don't own an airbrush, i always use brushes, do u av any experience on those with brushes?

I like to use the airbrush, because one will get a very thin and even surface. Especially when you are priming the surface. I think using a brush is possible. It's only my personal experience. When you paint on all the small details and for blending you have to use a brush.

 

Here's an example were I used only the washes on plastic, primed with matt varnish:
