What does this have to do w/ Model cars? other than you can't paint in High Humidity / High Temps / Torrential Rain

That's the main reason I hate humidity and high temps, right there. Need to do a paint job? Sorry, too humid.... :)

That pretty much depends on one's infrastructure. If you are a partial open-air modeller like me, the weather is the most important thing. As a rule of thumb:

The weather in England is only good for modelling, when I have to be in the office. The moment I finally manage to allocate time to paint a model car body, it sure will be like you see it in the movies.
Nothing is better for a good paint job, than a heat wave.

Wow, England is just like Michigan!
