Brushing varnish

Because airbrushing gloss varnish is still a skill I can't yet call mastered, I tried brushing the varnish on, just in  those places where decals will go. The entire model will be coated matt, not glossy, but for best decal adhesion, a gloss coat is highly recommended.

I applied it to the two sloped panels, on both sides of the canon. The left side with unthinned varnish, the right side with 1:1 varnish and thinner.
The thinned version (right) smoothed itself out evenly, but you can still see it's brush-applied. The unthinned side (left) shows an uneven, pebbly surface. I'll redo the left side, then start placing decals.
