Recommendations on first kit

My observation has been that the drying time of enamels can vary depending on humidity.  I do not remember where I learned this, but if you are unsure whether the paint has dried, smell the painted part. If it still smells like paint, it is not completely dry.  If it does not have an odor, it is dry. This has worked for me. 

Agreed on that note. I painted my last bird with MM enamel and the smell took a week or so to fully dissipate. And that was in the heat of summer! Now its getting colder and wetter. Need to build myself a curing box with a heat lamp.
