Another brilliant build Rafa ! Your Cylon Raider
Could you please share how you highlighted/finished the panelling ( lines ) on it’s surface, they’re so sharp & defined ?
It’s extraordinary !
I will try to explain, in the simplest way I can, the steps I have taken to highlight the panels of my Cylon Raider:
1- Engrave the panel lines using Dymo type self-adhesive tape as a rule.
2- Once the model is painted, highlight all the lines with a medium or soft tip pencil that is well sharpened. Then rub all the lines, following their path, with a fine tip diffuser.
3- Using white pastel powder and cotton swabs, light up gradually the ends of the panels opposite to the direction of vehicle movement.
4- Using black pastel powder, do the same at the opposite ends of the panels, but more irregularly, leaving darker those whose line we want to stand out more than the others.
5- With reddish brown pastel powder we give a little color in the areas that we have left darker.
6- Perform hits, scratches and general dirt.

I hope this helps.
