dr_gn Posted January 31 Share Posted January 31 All, I'll be building a 1:72 Airfix Spitfire Mk1 soon, and the panel lines are huge, especially on the rear upper fuselage. I've already got the kit, so might as well at least try to use it. I can think of a few methods to address the line widths and depths: 1) Fill with dissolved sprue and re-scribe. 2) Fill with filler and re-scribe (some fillers are a nightmare to scribe without crumbling). 3) Use Mr. Surfacer or similar, and hope for the best. 4) Fill, and draw the panel lines on with a pencil. 5) Sand the whole airframe surface down (not a viable option IMO). 6) Leave it, and hope light weathering will hide them (I do like to do a dilute wash on panel lines). None of them seem particularly foolproof. Any other ideas? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
