Certainly. Tamiya even has a product for such use:



There are other methods as well, such as pre-shading, washes, etc.

Some modelers use a felt pen to outline the the panel lines, then use a rattle can for the top coat. If you are careful, then the panel lines will show through. I'd test it first.

I accent my panel lines with artist's oil paints. You can either use a dark grey, brown, or black to rub in some definition along your panel lines, or use a light color such as white to accent the centers of your panels (positive post shading) as I've been doing on my Bf-109G.

You are not limited to using just an airbrush for this method.
