Anyone use gel pens to detail?

I've heard of guys using gel pens to detail but not sure we're what or how you would use them on. I usr colored pencil for a few things like gauge lettering and screens(like in a velocity stack etc...) But gel pens??

A white Gelly Roll pen works very well for white letter tires and for making whitewall tires with a circle templet.

Good tips thanks.

Does anyone use them for dash details?

I'd rather use a colored pencil for dash details like gauges or a radio instead of using a pen.

milky gel pens can also be used for patterns and stripes in paintwork !

Never thought of that. How well do they work?
