This is my first attempt at building any kind of vehicle. Must say it was not totally enjoyable, and am not really happy with it. And one thing I will never never use Humbrol clear gloss again. Still here she is all comments and suggestions welcome.

if I understand your remarks correctly you had hassle with orange- peel effect of your varnish coat. Yes it does effect what is otherwise a great model. But you tried something new and that's the risk you take. No worries.

I stay away from clean finishes because of this kind of thing but car builders tackle this with elbow grease and abrasives don't they ?

Thanks for comment. I place all the blame on Humbrol clear gloss from now on it is going to be Gunze clear. I thought about micromesh but i am afraid decals would suffer, do i will livw with it. But this is my first and only car.
