I had thought my plugs ready until I took a trip to Ace in the hole in Vegas last month. Then I saw many models of fine finish and scale looks. Particularly John Morgan out of Tennessee. John is a super nice and skilled model builder with quite the lineup of models at the show. So with that said I had to step up my skill level so that next years event I could have something decent to show. I researched all kinds of methods of how to make panel lines look real and so forth. Then I came across this method of masking then spraying with high build 2K primer and feathering the panel back into itself. So I used electrical tape that is 0.010" thick that I got from the Lowes electrical section. It cost about $5 and you get a package of several colors that are about 3/8" wide. This is absolutely perfect for making tight curves and leaves a crisp finished line at just about the correct height to look nice and scale.
