I don't see the need to use an oven to dry your paint. Just cover it and leave it in a cool dry place. Depending on the type of paint, it shouldn't take that long to dry.

After i apply the first wetcoat, I usually wait 24 hours for lacquers, and 2-3 days for enamels, acrylics are very similar to lacquers in their drying time btw.

Then after the final wetcoat, I allow it to cure for at least 4-5 days for lacquers, and good 10 days for enamels.

Maybe I can help you here, don't bake them in the oven, at all!
Instead, have you got an oil heater and some 2mm thick plywood? If so after I spray my models I transfer them from my spraying rack by putting my fingers on the inside of the roof, then put them on the 2mm thick plywood sheet that I have to size for the oil heater, then I put the heater on about mdeium-medium hot. Leave it for about 10 minutes, come back and turn it down a bit, then leave if for about 30 minutes, then come back again, make sure its ok, if it is then I just leave if for 2 hours or something, and it keep the shine for me most of the time :dunno:

Whatever anyone says about baking them, don't do it. That's really tough luck man, what will you do with the rest of that `65 kit?

that might be, but just because it dry to the touch, doesn't mean it's fully cured. There is a difference. ;)

still dont know how much of a hurry you guys are in because i did this in 3 hours paint and all with it just sitting in the shop drying on its own. and thats using nasty ass Boyd's paint even. which is gooey as hell.

Keep in mind that you live in desert also, the guys in humid areas may indeed have problems with drying.
Instead of putting it in an oven some guys use a food dehydrator. THese work at low temps and can dry a body in a few hours.
