OMG - before the world discovered / switched over to CAD drafting, Rotring were the 'Gold Standard' in drawing pens. I've used and worn out hundreds - everything from 0.1mm to 1.2mm. Faber Castell are another good brand but I preferred the Rotring brand. Positive enough? LOL!

Hmm, could you be little more enthusiastic?  LL~
Thank you, about what size would you use for panel lines? Where I'm ordering from has 0.25 and 0.35.

In my opinion 0,25(mm) is too fine, you’ll have big trouble with dried/damaged/blocked tips. 0,25mm is roughly 1/128”
0,35 is allready much more user friendly but still a little too fine to my taste. I like my inklines a little exaggerated, maybe not so ”scale”, so I use 1,0mm wide pen. And for rivets, I use 0,35mm
So, depending on your personal taste, I’d recommend 0,35-1,0mm inklines.
Also please note that, maybe depending on country where they are sold, or era, modern Rapidograph pens are not refillable but with a single use ink cartridge. All my re-fillable Rotrings are called Isograph. L

Thank you and nice work, I ordered the .35
