Has anyone tried these parting line scrapers? Any good? Which one are you using? Have you ever dealt with the seller?

Parting lines, like panel lines?

I got the UMM scribing tool.

and some other, basically it's a Nail with a handle, I'll take a picture of it.

To answer your question, nope, never heard of them.
I told you photobucket sucks...

Nope not panel lines, parting lines where the two halves of the mold meet and leave a faint raised line on the parts. I generally scrape with the back of an hobby knife. These come in different shapes so you don’t let flat spots on curved surfaces like gun barrels etc.

Like one of those pesky mold lines on a otherwise pristine canopy?

I use escapement files. Especially on things that have to be smooth like the landing gear on my P-38F. Flat spot, lines, and other irregularities show up real clear with a high metal polish like the oleo part has.
