    OK I will be “That guy. No need to start a new thread for each question. Your new, GREAT glad to have you and we will gladly help. But these same questions have already been asked multiple times. Check out the “Modeling tips How to and tricks” sticky threads like the painting one.
    When you panel line it will require clean up, sometimes a lot of it. What kind of top coat did you use? With Gundam markers you can do clean up with lighter fluid. Just take a Q-Tip dampen it with a little lighter fluid and clean up the over spill from the lining. But it also depends on what you used for a topcoat you don’t want to mess up the paint underneath.

    I'm also looking to delete some of my older posts that I think is not needed, that are are answered too, sorry for the mess. But the panel line that I am talking about is like embedded, its not exactly the panel line that is etched, I really dont know how to tell you what is it, but the line is kinda molded, I think most of the guys use reverse eash, but since I am using cans I think I cant do that. I have not yet top coated my paint, should I do that then put panel lines then top coat again?

    Yes! Always top coat before you do a panel line. Like I said panel lining is messy and never looks good until after the clean up is done.

    As for your part. You are trying to make the filigree stand out on the arm parts. You can still do a type of revers wash. Sort of. Spray the part in the color you want the filigree to be, in your case white. Then topcoat it and let the part fully cure, say over night. Then spray with the color you want the rest of the part to be, and give the paint a few minutes to dry a bit. Then with a tight Q-Tip wipe away the paint on the filigree. Just use a damp Q-Tip, you won't take off the top coat and the white paint.

    A thinning agent. If your using water based, then use water.

    I've always read using Enemals with lighter fluid as the thinning agent, over a lacquer gloss coat is the best way to go.

    But I am using spray can, I think all of them, including the clear coat, is enamel, thats not good right because I first need a laquer paint, then laquer thinner then maybe a spray gun, and I dont have those yet, and maybe I wont, any alternatives?
