I like the snow job on the Chevelle!
Very realistic, though the red stripe should be
somewhat muted by the snow.;)

Solvaset......I stole this description from the net.

For the most realistic models, decals should look like they're painted on. Getting professional results is easy with Solvaset. It actually softens the decal film so it snuggles down to the surface and stretches over details, such as rivets, without hiding them. Also eliminates air bubbles, white spots, draping and silvering. Just brush it on and Solvaset does the rest!

Yer too far back! Move in. Atomized paint droplets are drying before it contacts the workpiece...or the can is fubar.

To successfully execute a uniform paint film it must be liquid. Because yer so far away it becomes a semi solid, hence the stuccoed appearance.
