    Fixing stray scribed lines

    Post by neofushion on Thu 23 Jan 2014, 11:49 am

    Hi everyone,

    Wanted to ask - how do you all fix strayed panel lines? I've got a problem with a Rick Dias that I am working on, where due to a few "oops"  the lines went astray (see red circles below).

    The worse one is where the lines were so close to a panel line that I did (the far right).

    So far, I have access to the following materials:-

    1. superglue and baking soda
    2. tamiya putty (hardened a bit though)
    3. epoxy putty
    4. Mr Surfacer

    So....which would be a more better option?

    I personally will use superglue + powder, hardens quickly and hard enough to scribe. Putty might just chip off

    I use tamiya white putty (the one in the tube). then sand off and touch up the scribing. If the putty has dried abit, you can try using lacquer thinner to thin it down.

    alternatively if the cut is not very deep, can try using 500 grit primer and sand down. The regular 1000 grit doesn't seem to work very well.
