Bart Goesaert looks nice so far. What do you use to fill the panellines before scribing?

Pierre-Christian Baudru Thanks Bart ! For the scribing first I draw, based on a 3-view plan, the main lines on the model parts. Then using templates like verlinden or home made ones, I create the lines with a needle. To check the job you can aply a dark wash to see the line you did. Remember that before everything else, as the Heller kit has old panel lines, I had to sand all of them. Cheers.

Bart Goesaert I asked because I intended to do the same but on an Italeri with recessed panellines, but these are large and wrong...
@ Bart: I usually use cyano mixed with baby powder So far the only and best option I've come accross. No shrinking at all and you can be sure that nothing will break away while rescribing...

Pierre-Christian Baudru Benoit has just said everything.......CYANO glue + baby powder I agree ! In my case, except for the mobile parts panel lines, the Heller kit has not engraved panel lines so I just had to sand all of them, that's easier then when you have too deep engraved panel lines like on matchbox ou HPM models. Cheers.
