    Steve glad to hear you’ve come to agree that force-drying with petroleum distillates usually has weak outcomes. My experience has been even as extreme as crinkling that caused spalling and fracture marks on the model. I’m in Texas so even moderate humidity vs AC is noticeably significant.

    My brother in law does resin work for a military contractor and explained to me how that happens. Summed up, there is unevenness in the liquid layers that mesh when wet but tear at each unequally when being wicked dry with fans.

    Letting the layer “dry” (outgas really) more slowly essentially reduces the tear points so that they cure at a more even rate.
