Update on my Hornet. The hull is almost complete, I just need to paint over the black transfers to blend them into the surface. Prior to applying the transfers, I had an epic varnishing fail that left some patchy areas. I wonder if I'll ever manage to paint one Eldar vehicle without messing up the airbrush gradients somewhere. Vallejo Game Color Gloss Varnish used to be so good when it had the old VGC label. It seems they changed the formula when they switched to the new generic labels. The consistency is thicker and the varnish is more yellowish. Maybe I just got a bad bottle. Nevertheless, I'll get out and try some GW 'Ardcoat this Saturday, so it hopefully won't happen again.

Next are the weapons and the canopy.
