  1. Hi I'm new to model plane painting. I have a 1/72 jet fighter which has many very fine and pretty shallow panel lines. I've put a primer paint which seems to leave them still visible. Then I paint by brush with model acrylic, which seems not to be too thick- in fact pretty watery, but it seems to cover the lines completely. I've tried doing a wash on the painted areas, and indeed- the thin lines are no longer deeper than the surface, so will not get darker. They are lost. How can I do this? If I remove the paint and do a pre-shading I will just cover the shading with the paint. If the lines aren't deep enough in the original model, I don't see how I can retain them in the final painted model. I can try using very little paint, but it's very hard to paint well with brush while getting full cover AND not seeing ugly brush strokes because the paint is too dry. And I don't have the option of airbrush at this point. Any advice? Thanks
