I have tried everything, adjusting air pressure, paint mix, distance from model, all the usual things, yet still I suffer from a poor finish. It may be a silly question, but I was wondering, just how close can one expect to get to the standard of a beautifully smooth factory finished model? Is it something that should be reasonably achievable?
I can get decent paint coverage (please see the pictures), but my finish is just not as smooth as I would like. But I do wonder if its because I am trying to achieve the impossible and am expecting a perfect factory finish.I don't know what the expected standards should be, not having met anyone proficient themselves in the subject.
Also, when the model is finished, does the final coat of varnish improve the overall finish? Again just wondering as I havent actually got that far with a loco repaint yet.
