Hi, i bought as a second ever model a b-17G from revell to practice on some big surface for metal paint, the result wasnt great but this isnt about my paint job. I wasnt aware when i bought it that there was kit with raised panel line, i have assume that every set were recess. Now i have tried sludge wash and panel line with enamel humbrol and even try with the tamiya one. Nothing seem to do the tricks. I have gloss it well before decal and even more after. i can drop some picture if needed but im helpless in making those panel line what they are suppose to. As i watch the preview for the Lancaster Tamiya in the january video, i realize that some plane were actually raised panel for real, and the lancaster is definetly a plane i would love to build, so i must master this art of weatering raised panel line. If you can drop some image or link for example it would be great!

Tx so much

A quick and easy way to highlight raised panel lines is to go over them with the edge of a pencil, you will have to be careful when you handle the model though as the graphite can get messy until it's sealed with a matt coat

Hope this helps

Hi Baleinstein,

If you look at my current build you can see examples of where I have deliberately created panel lines to correctly represent the welding seams on the external fuel tanks of my Mirage rather than simply use the engraved lines that were originally part of the kit. I am currently at the stage of painting over the primer and I will be starting to use Panel Line Washes from AMMO by Mig Jimenez at the weekend (http://www.migjimenez.com/en/40-aircraft-weathering-sets)

You are most welcome to watch as this progresses and please feel free to make any comments you wish,
Peter

Hi Baleinstein,

I applied AMMO Panel Line Wash this past weekend to the raised panel lines I created ... I chose to use two different colours of wash to reflect a natural shadow effect on the two different base colours

Let me know what you think,
Peter
