    Rob, the guy used an oil paint for artists ( painters ), ( pic 1). I'm sure you noticed that the modeller applied it twice. Once before the wing was painted (primered) and twice before the entire model got these final colours. It is a technique known as "a wash". Usually it is done at the end of all works on a model but before applying the final matt dope.
    In the case the main colours are very light ( white, light grey and yellow ) and the black wash makes them looking dirty (pic 2,3). Of course these jetliners don't look dirty do they? In order to avoid a such appearance of the model he applied the black paint into all panel lines firstly. Then he sprayed these main colours. The paint is a different kind from the main colours that have been used. The difference in the kind of paints cause that these main colours were easy to remove from panel lines with the needle (pic 4,5). Just the main paints peeled off there.
