I think it looks superb Mike
Despite doing mine in the bathroom it was still covered in what appears to be dust but Iím going to settle on 3ft scale
If it looks ok from 3ft it will do  {-) 
The colour the shine and the inlay make a much bigger impact than some dust can undo  :-))


On my final coat I wonít have the extract fan on and see if itís any better

Evening Andy.


Good thinking, probably the best way to go.


The problem with the size of my boat is that there's quite a large surface area, the dust then has a big target to settle on.


One glimmer of hope  tho' is that after I noticed it this morning I put it outside in disgust. The sun was shining all day on the model and its was quite hot. Have just brought it indoors and much of the inclusions seem to have disappeared, but not all.
I'm going to leave it for a week or so and see if it's acceptable, hope so.


I don't mind having to cut it back, but how to prevent the same thing happening, the answer is defying me.


Mike.

This is why Iím hoping that 0000 wire wool and pure beeswax may fix it but Iíve yet to try
