Maybe I am being a bit over cautious but you might be better with LED style lighting it will not be too hot , I follow you thinking the heat will cure the paint faster  , heat, motor spark  or is the extract fan brushless  ,paint fumes as you will be aware can go flash bang and that not good.

Hi David
The reason for the heat is to combat the intense cold and prevent the paint blooming. Itís not about drying time. The extract fan will be pulling precious warm air out of the shed while Iím spraying but once Iíve done the lights will go out the fan will go off and the door closed behind me. There certainly wonít be enough heat to ignite acrylic paint

The blower looks like a bilge blower, got one on our boat so should not be a prob as it shifts LPG and petrol fumes.

The next vid after that ,car pool karaoke with James Cordan, is brilliant. She is absolutely wonderful, tried 3 times to get tickets to see her but all gone in seconds! Not bad for a curvy London bird.......better than any of the sticks we see imho.

Actually, I'm not so sure about that:}
Tamiya acrylics all have a flammable sticker on them as does the thinner for spraying. Checking the contents shows alcohols and esters all highly flammable. Also a warning dont use near flames or sparks.

I just re lacquered the hull. Quite an intense amount of Satin spray completely surrounding the halogen light and the too hot to touch glass. No adverse results, I'm still here eyebrows in tact  {-)
The tins do mention 50C but that is for storage of the tin as it could explode from increased pressure.
I think it would take at least a naked light to induce a flash  %%

I recall a school trip years ago to the local fire station. Had a tour round, slid down thd pole, sat in fire engine etc etc, all good stuff for youngsters. Then demo time, big pan on floor,  gallon of 4 star poured into it, then one of the crew lobbed a lit fag end in it, nothing happened, several more where ceramoniously flicked in with no effect.......along came the head man with full BA kit on and kneeled down about 10 foot away and lit a match.......BOOM........almighty fire ball......several scrsaming kids legged it and several more stood wide eyed in awe at the ensuing inferno. Water was first used to put it out......WOOSH......another fireball........absolutely awesome sight, then they spoil it by putting foam on it. They went to great lengths to show the dangers and causes of fires and I still have a healthy respect for anything that can go bang, pop, whizz or burn. But manafacturers are frightened to death if someone is stupid enough to use NAKED FLAMES near stuff, hence all the over the top precautions. As long as you can cover the source of heat or potential spark then you should be ok. Point to remember, turn things on before spraying, then let the room clear before turning off, in case of spafk from switch gear, unless you want to buy Ex rated equipment.......££££££££.
Worked in hazardous/explosive enviroments and never had any misshaps.

Unexpectedly recalled to work so down time again so I thought I'd update where its at and add some views.
The hull is now re lacquered. The bulwarks inside and out plus deck will be lacquered next. Once that is done all deck fittings will be re attached or attached for the first time. I'll then re lacquer the deckhouse before turning attention to the wheelhouse and upwards.

Thank you all for the encouraging words  :-))


I've thought hard about this next major lacquering and to be frank its just not possible in my spray shed.
I need to be able to get around all sides quickly in warm weather to avoid patches of dry overspray. So begging for a freak heat wave (we do get them)
A bit disappointed as that would have lead to a boat load of work being finished (pun)


Attention is now focused on the wheelhouse alone and I'm going to whittle away at it including the inside equipment.
Only 20 more frames to do and I'm priming as I go so I can deal with any imperfections a little at a time rather than one big job at the end.

Tonight I've ordered a selection of Neodymium magnets as I hope to keep the wheelhouse roof permanently demountable. I'd no idea they were so cheap and the bigger ones potentially dangerous.
