Deepening panel lines

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.  In late July yall helped me with stripping the paint from my diecast.  With that now done I was wondering if there is a way to deepen the panel lines?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

razor saw?  Not sure if a scribe or dental pick would work with the metal.  But I used a razor saw to cut a new fender line at bottom in a recent build.

I use the back side of a number 11 x-acto blade. If that is too sharp, use one that has the tip broken off.

That should work. X-Acto blade steel should be harder than whatever alloy diecasts are made of, so it should work. It's likely to take forever, though.

Though I routinely rescribe kit bodies, I've never tried it on a diecast, so I really have no idea how much work might be involved. I'm guessing probably a LOT.
