Just because it's too hot. I'm worried about painting anything or trying to decal and have everything dry out on me. Obviously I don't have any AC or heat pump in or near the modeling area. I'm just thinking of putting my projects on hold until it gets a bit cooler. How do you all cope?

I find warmer better for most things, its extreme humidity or winter cold/damp that gets in the way.. out of direct sun and just a fan keeping the air moving should do the trick for most paints/finishes I would think, and if paint is drying too quick use a bit more extender? Of course it may be too hot to work in comfort, at which point hit the pool ;)

YMMV

Perfect excuse to grab another kit from the stash and start another kit using non heat effected processes.

Yes. I paint in summer and build in winter unless I can paint in winter anyway. My big problem is not having any time to do any of it.

When it get too hot where I live we just open the front and back door which seems to work well it pushes the hot/stuffy air outside.

Thanks Henry

Yeah it's so hot here, I've had to drop the temperature in the man cave to 21 degrees, it's sooo cold :P
