Sharp(ie) window trim

RELATED TOPICS: DETAILING
I’ve discovered a new technique for adding the black rubber trim around window glass on model cars. First, using a black Micron-brand ink pen, carefully follow the engraved lines around windows. After the line is drawn, I use a black Sharpie permanent marker and carefully fill in the trim. Then, I apply mist coats of clear gloss on the model to seal in the ink. The key is to slowly build up the overcoats; if you use too much, the ink will run. The result is perfect trim around windows. It’s the easiest, most controllable way I have found to do it.
