WHat is my basic set up to rescribe panel lines in terms of tools? I'm currently using a scalpel but it just doesn't cut it :-D

Dymo tape and a pin or needle in a pin-drill finger vise

Ditto, use a sharp sewing needle, (a pin will more likely bend). Do several light passes to build up the desired depth. Lightly sand to remove the burr, and then rescore to remove sanding dust. Finally some people run a light coat of liquid poly over the lines, this softens minor imperfections and dissolve any remaining dust.

Better to fettle than to fill
