Estes STM-012 Kitbash to the B32-M Spike, Part 11, Nose Cone Paint

Damn paint!
Painted plastic nose cones take forever to dry!

Sure, the can says "Recoat within one hour or after 24 hours." I waited a few days after the white undercoat. That seemed to take forever to dry.
The red coat wrinkled!

This slowed down the finish of this build.
This picture shows the wrinkled surface after wet sanding with 400 grit.

I think I'll wait a week before trying to spray the red again.
