    Does anyone know what I'd call something like that if I were to go to a hobby store?

    I want to pick it up to fill in a few details of some of my classics transformers I've got hanging around here.

    I know that you could get them in a kit with the gundam paint pens (the ones designed for the models).

    I just am looking for the single black pen that you basically draw on the cracks and the details then wipe the excess away..

    Here's an ebay example:

    Will that micron pen allow you to wipe it off with a rag if you mess up.

    I know the gundam black pen wipes cleanly off if you wipe immediately.

    i use ultra fine sharpies (you could probably use even the fat ones) and erase over the lines with an eraser. if the detail line is deep enough, which it usually is, then it should stay marked
