Well, I'll give the panel line suggestions a try. I'll take some pictures and post before and after versions.

Thanks again for all your responses and suggestions....

Why don't You use dental acrylic filler instead of baking soda ,pretty sure you will have better results since is finer than the baking soda,here is a great info from Paul Budzik using it

Hello All...

I tried the several methods of restoring panel lines suggested in this message string. After a number of tries on scrap plastic, I found the best results by using Tamiya tape and Squardon green putty.

Using one layer of tape, I carefully ran a strip above and below the existing panel lines and spanned the areas where the lines had been sanded whilst joining the ship hull halves.

My next step was to apply a film of putty over the space between the two tape strips. Allowing the putty to dry for a couple of hours, I pulled the tape from ship hull and found that I had a very close approximation of the original panel line. Some light sanding on the dried putty surface finished the line. When I sealed the hull with primer, each repaired panel line looked quite good.

I tried to take some photos of the process, but my camera just wouldn't show the detail of work I thought necessary.

Regardless, I thank everyone who shared ideas. I tried them and with some modification found the solution to my problem.

Cheers to you all!
