Awwwwwwwwwwwww no.  That's a shame.  It was looking so good.

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Just put her as is into a WHIF diorama- here she was found in a swamp in Java/SE Asia/Africa in ~1958 with very worn paint.....

Otherwise a restrip... :angry: sorry

Yes - an unintended outcome.  However there may be salvation.  I am hopeless at "factory finish" and I don't even try anymore. So I build aircraft in battle weary look.  When I saw your first images, my first thought was - what a great "old" look, particularly under the wing.  So if you want to explore such a finish, perhaps of an old unused aircraft left tied up to a dock, you may be able to hide the current outcome by aging the apprearance.

Of course, if you don't want to go down that way, you have my condolences.  I used spray clears from ModelMaster and don't have that problem (most of the time).  There was a time I used spray cans a lot but have moved away from them as the finish and paint thickness is not what I am after anymore.

Aaaaahhhhhh, the joys (and sorrows) of our hobby.
