    Bad idea. Black sharpie can fade over time, developing a purple or brown tint. If you're going to do any detail work, use a paint marker.

    BAD. It smears and never dries. Use one of these instead. They dispense paint instead of ink because they are designed for detailing model kits.

    EDIT: ninja'd

    What these guys said. I think silver sharpies do good but black ones don't.

    Sharpies are for Post-Its, not Transformers.

    OP: Do you have any previous panel lining or detailing experience? If not, I'd practice on another first.

    Use paint. I don't get why so many people here seem to insist on using sharpies. I use Games Workshop Citadels.

    Sharpies work for me.

    Most of my TF's have beautiful silver rims...

    Sharpie makes PAINT pens that work extremely well. They come in a few common colors and few sizes options aswell. Michaels carrys them for a few dollars each.
