    Go to Amazon and check out yoctosun, these things are the bomb, 5 lenses and a built in light. Game changer for me, and they are like $20. Comfortable and you can wear glasses while wearing them as well. Lens angle and light angle are adjustable, I love them.

    I'll second this recommendation. Additionally, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the light works.

  2. Wloomed aboard, Kurt. It's a good place for model builders.

    I visited Trinidad in 63, 64 and 65 while in the US Navy. We picked up the admiral and his staff that were stationed there and circled South America. I have many fond memories of visiting there. It's a beautiful place. Love the steel drum bands.

  3. If the ceiling is 8' tall, you'll be venting 384 cubic feet. My marine engine bay exhaust fan runs at 170 cfm. My math says it'll take 2 minutes and 15 seconds to evacuate that space, theoretically. it's not going to be as simple as that because those fumes will linger and mix with any other open vented air entering the room. I'd connect a paint hood or as some call them a paint booth to the exhaust which will capture more of the fumes. In addition, you must wear a respirator. Those fumes will linger longer than 2 minutes and 15 seconds. I still get a slight whiff of paint odor from my enclosed booth which is 2x3x3 or 18 cubic feet after a few minutes of spraying.
