Hi all,

I am about to start a Hasegawa Shinden in 1/48. All is well with the kit except for the raised panel lines. I have never done a re-scribing job before and would like your advise in doing so. Or would it be better to leave them as is? Thanks!

Hi Derek!

Here is something for you: Scribing Made Eezee? by Mal Mayfield (Holdfast).

I hope this helps and good luck with your Shinden!

Thanks Jean-Luc it is greatly appreciated. When I get started on it I may do a build log as well. I plan on a show base like I did for the P-39, except a coral atoll type theme.
