Jehuty English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Jehuty from the Anubis Zone of Enders was released last year by Kotobukiya as a plastic model kit. The Jehuty is one of the core mecha of the popular video game, Zone of Enders. As a model kit, the Jehuty is non-scale and stands approximately 18cm in height.

I just love the glowing effects in the panel lines of the model kit. There is a provision in the color guide as to how to color this, just wondering however how to implement this? Considering of course that panel lines colors are usually implemented as a wash. But that's just me, I've never implemented a wash on a model before and I mostly use a mechanical pencil for panel lining. This however isn't for lack of trying, but rather because I could never find the usual recommend paints (enamel) or thinning medium (mineral spirits for oil paint) in panel lining.

The non-scale Jehuty by Kotobukiya from Anubis Zone of Enders is selling for $ at Amazon, 3300 yen at Amiami, 3840 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 4080 yen at Hobby Search
