Do you mean "raise panel lines" or "create panel lines"

If you mean raising panel lines; I have never heard of that being done.

But frequently modelers will create panel lines with a panel line engraving/etching tool.

use streached spruce. heat it then pull then use an acrilyc cement to glue it on. superglue and regular glue will melt it. enjoy

The best way to create panel lines is to scribe new ones. This will create the much preferred, recessed panel lines.

The Tamiya panel line engraving tool is excellent. I bought a less expensive brand once and it worked O.K. Then I got the one from Tamiya and it is excellent for engraving lines.

The other needed tool for creating new panel lines is a flexible steel ruler to guide your tool on an aircraft's curves.

I've got a line scribing article on my website if you'd care to check it out. Go to the "How To..." page.

My technique is a bit off the beaten path, but it works!
