You know.. if you can't bother to get the images in focus, you shouldn't bother to post the pics.

Dust looks like either paint globbing up (if so .. clean your brushes more) or the dreaded clear coat spatter.
If its the clear coat .. here is a tip from a loquatious mr. kitchen that has always served me well.
Mr. Kitchen did some time at the armoury. (before it went under) a distributor for games/cards etc. and their primer (they made their own primer) was pretty good. He noticed with personal use however, that it was much better in the summer months than the winter months. He surmised over time, that it was becuase during the winter months, the temprature in the warehouse got much lower, and caused the primer to partially congiel. thus the 'fuzzy' look.
GW U.S warehouses are heated, and this problem never really showed up there. Can't speak for independant retail stores though. If your shopkeep doesn't turn the heat on in the winter, could hurt the paint.
Short moral of the story, buy your primer fresh, and don't let it get cold. [same thing goes for your matt sealers.] and throw the can out after it gets more than 9 months old.

I'll lock this since the genius got himself banned.
