Now there is a old school skinner speaking from experience salute
We added 'occlusion' to areas close to structural joints, such as wings to fuselage, tailplane/fin to fuselage etc. This was done by adding a darker 'shadow' at the join areas. Again something now redundant with the advent of the shaders.
