Help us fix the one troublesome wainscoting panel in our kitchen!

We used the 4x8 panels from Lowes to do the upper walls and ceiling beam in my new kitchen. The effect is stunning, We had no problem with any seams except for ONE and we have put spackle in it sanded it down and over and over again and this particular one is still visible. Does anyone have another trick to cover this one bad area. We are now trying to just paint one coat at a time under the line which looks like a shadow. If I knew how to put a photo on here I would, but
maybe someone has an ingenious answer to this problem.

    A photo would help! I am going to assume that the seam where the two panels meet is not flat. One panel may be slightly higher than the one butting up against it. Just enough to create a shadow look. Lay a straight edge (like a ruler/yard stick, long level 24"+) across the seam spanning the two panels. If you see light or a gaps, the panels are not laying flat to each other. If this is the problem, you may be able to carefully pry the panels at the seam with a putty knife and insert cardboard shims under the panels, checking for fatness with the straight edge, until any gaps are gone.
