I have recently returned to scale modelling after many years. I have always used the colour schemes on the box and have never tried any weathering techniques.

SMH Responds Weathering is a big topic, I can think of a dozen articles on this website alone dealing with the topic. Nothing takes away the plastic look of model more than painting it and then giving it "age" by weathering.

One of my early articles provides several tips on weathering and offers links to pages and pages of painting instruction. You can get started here:
