First I want to say that this is first time I have painted on top of Gloss varnish, so previous clients will not have this problem 😉
Did the mistake of thinking a wash on top of Gloss varnish, was enough to make the next layer of paint stick.
This was a bad call, I now know to always apply a Matt varnish after a Gloss, if I want to continue painting on a model.
This was a hard learned lesson, and I really appreciate the help on the forums!
Now to start on the repairs, and restore the honor of this ancient machine spirit ;)
Chaos gives, and chaos rewards.
