Airbrushing in hot weather?

Recommended Posts

So I've recently decided to airbrush my 1:72 Vulcan, masked it and everything, but I'm not sure wheather I should be spraying outside in the hot weather, the temperature this time of the year is normally around 45-50 degrees! We're I live, Would it effect the model in any way? I should I stop being a wuss and get on with it?

At that temp the paint has a good chance of drying before it gets to the model. Just not worth the hassle of having to strip it and waiting for cooler weather.

I have the same weather albeit halfway across the globe. I found that  humidity, or lack thereof, is a huge factor when spraying acrylics. It might be even more important than actual temperature. I concur, spray when it's a bit cooler.
