I actually have an indoor paint booth (extra bay in the garage) with a separate heater and exhaust fan, so I can paint almost anytime. I have a new way I am painting my rockets. No more Krylon products, no more sanding sealers. The only issue is that I am using enamels and it takes at least 48 hours for the paints to fully cure.

I miss the old Krylon lacquers (no drips and dried in 10 minutes or less) but the current Krylon products are so inferior it is not worth even considering using them. I usually get all my paints at Walmart or a big box store and I wonder if anyone else has noticed their shelves are well stocked with Krylon products, it seems to me no one else is buying then either. Too bad for Sherwin Williams, I have a lot of respect for the company, always wanted to work for them, and now it seems they let their product quality for consumers slip for one reason or another. I know I can still get the Krylon Industrial Acryli Quik Acrylic Laquers (https://www.krylonindustrial.com/wp...web_spreads.pdf) if I shop around for them, but its not worth my time and effort especially now having to pay for shipping costs.

Bruce,

Amazon has single can Acryli-Quik for as low as $7.02, with free shipping (Prime, but usually free if you spend over $35). I did not see if all colors are there, but I saw many. Unfortunately, some single cans are a lot pricier than $7.02 per can. I may just get black and white, which could be great for a lot of rockets.

I have a few cans of the acrylic lacquer originals (Interior-Exterior formula) from 20 years ago, and they still spray. Iíve saved them for touch-up on really old models. I loved that paint, and cursed the replacement (called Indoor-Outdoor, as I recall).

Until recently, I could only find the Acryli-Quik by the case. Makes it just a bit pricey to get all the basic colors!

The other day our closest tv station said that we have had rain seven Mondays in a row. I know that several Sundays before that had rain too, so we've had rain pretty much every week most of the winter. I don't think I've ever seen as wet a winter, and it was backed by a very wet summer compared to normal.

That nose cone looks like an upscale of the BNC-50BC from the TEROS.
