Upon further review, the topic has been unlocked!

Seriously, I googled 'model zimmerit', and returned dozens of articles.  That link was just the first one that came up.  Google is your friend...

I did a quick zimmerit effect on my Desert Dom using regular tamyia white putty and a small flat head screw driver.

HLJ sells a tool for Zimmerit effect.

Basically its a cog which you roll on to epoxy putty.  You can make your own from any plastic cog from a RC or toy.

There is also a modelling video on using the Zimmerit tool on a tank.

Here's the bit-torrent link.

Save as

Also it contains videos on making gundam models(all japanese).  Highly recommended download.
