A gentleman on Britmodeler posted some pics of his new 1/48 Il-4:

It looks very nice to me,  however it appears that Xun Tong made the panel lines a bit to deep and wide.

I think the modeller, who otherwise did a great job on this model, didn't help things by accentuating the panel lines.

Hi,
I agree, the model is very well made but the panel lines are exaggerate. A door or an inspection panel can have this evidence, but the fixed panels not.
Besides, on the real thing, many of them should be overposed, so what one sees is a step instead of a slot. Only some kits of ICM and Amodel reproduce well this type of panels (and I think that they are hated by many modellers because they don't allow to use the traditional technique to put them into evidence).
I think that one should pass a layer of thick paint on many panels, and then carefully sandpaper the surface, to reduce their evidence before painting the model.
Regards
Massimo
