    One step backwards on this one!! The airbrush/varnish/weathering mix now working well together, and I will have to remove the top layer again and reapply, hopefully with better results...

    Yes Adrian, that's the problem. I added a tiny drop of black with varnish to apply some shading, but the paint did not dilute with the varnish. It was a MM which I opened very recently but it's straight to the bin. And it's in 1/72nd scale by the way.

    I love it but you have a lot of overspray. Need to adjust the pressure/thinning mix.

    But are you only seeing it on the 2nd photo?

    No even on the first. There is green overspray on the light tan. It needs another pass with the tan at the correct pressure and paint/thinnre mix and you will be fine. But the lighter colour is a dead giveaway for overspray.
