    I am just starting to get back in to Gundam Kits.

    After seeing some of the pics posted here I would like to know how you go about pannel linning?

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    You mean panel lining? I use a Gundam pen, and lightly rub/scrape/sand off any that gets out of the lines.

    I completely forgot about Gundam pens. They're kinda pricey but would do the job.

    Any extremly fine indelible ink pen will do the job. The finer the better. Check a proper art supply store.

    I used the grey gundam fine tip pannel lining pen to pannel line the cybertron surface of Primus. That way, the planet's surface and be more distinct. As for mistakes and all that, I just use cotton buds or my fingers to wipe off the excess.

    I have the all time best panel lining technique......get a 1 3/4 oz. bottle of testors paint thinner, a 1/4 oz. bottle of flat black paint and a medium paint brush. Pour 1/2 of the black into the thinner. Shake it up well !! Dip your brush, let a little of the excess run off. TOUCH THE BRUSH TO AN END OF THE PANEL LINE. AND THE MIXTURE WILL RUN THROUGH THE PANEL LINE. Continue until the line is done....let dry (15 min.) if there is any out of the line, lightly rub off with a cloth dipped in clean thinner.
