    Deepening Panel Lines
    Hi All,
     
    I hope someone can help me, there are lots of tips, tutes etc that suggest one can deepen a panel line by "using the back of a hobby knife".
    I had never really tried it, as when I had, it is nigh on impossible to keep the blade in the "groove" (obviously there isn't much of a groove - that's why i'm trying to deepen it) and I used to end up cutting outside the panel lines so much, that it ruins the body - it's quite difficult to use filler to fill an incorrectly cut groove - right next to where a panel line is.
    Anyway, I digress, I tried to do it more recently, but the result is terrible. please see photos, is there at technique or method or video of it being done properly? what am I doing so wrong to get it so bad...?
     
    thanks...!

    A few more updates, the wheels have been de-chromed, it took several months in brake fluid... 
    the interior is now primed with Alclad II white.

    Made lots of progress. The reason it took so long was that for some reason I took ages to deal with the sink marks and seam lines by filling with different fillers. I ended up getting some Mr Putty, and it's not great, but moved on...
    lots more to post soon.
    Used alclad II for the aluminium & airbrushed X-18 for the chassis.
    But used Tamiya silver for the engine cage.
