Yeah just use mixed mediums to do the panel lines. From what I know
most spray cans are lacquer based, so it's ok to use either watered
down acrylic or enamel paints for the panel lines. If you're using an
airbrush, never, ever spray enamel on your model. It will take a very
long, long time for it to dry. Acrylics generally takes a day to dry,
but still handle with care, just because it's dry on the surface
doesn't mean it's fully cured beneath.
Or if you find this whole thing of mixed mediums to be a hassle you
can always use the pen method, but that's just lazy and it gives the
model a toyish look. But hey, that's just me.
