so im going to have a crack at this
never done a DML kit in this scale so that will be fun, and so will the individual tracks :ohmy
you get a choice of 5 schemes......1 chinese from the korean war and 1 polish/3 russian from WW2
i might have a go at a winter whitewash paint job, seen it done with latex instead of hair spray ad fancy a go...........but then i might not, we shall see

Houston, we have a problem........

oil filter had dried so i wanted to give it a coat of matt varnish over the top, for a couple of reasons i ended up using a rattle can of humbrol matt acrylic and it had a funny reaction (and i did the king tiger at the same time and didnt get it on that) and when it dried its given a sort of white 'bloom'

only thing i can think of is to give it another wash, maybe a really thin green one, rather than a black one to try tone it down

any one else got any ideas?

i had the same thing, im led to believe that the varnish partly cures in the can over time and goes white when sprayed

dont know the answer sorry

Winter washing already done for you so just bung a dark grey to bring it all out then call it fading.
