I’d freeze a Tele any day but a 335?
Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.

That looks great. Any heat applied pre or post the deep freeze?

No, just well cured, proper nitro paint, dumped in a freezer for about 4 hours, and done. I did knock it and ding it a little bit prior, so those lines would head in those directions as they would naturally.

Maybe...I'd do it though. Maybe have it in the sun for a bit, warm it, then drop it in for a short period of time initially. Watch the progress.

The biggest challenge is, modern nitro as these companies apply it, is less likely to crack in a natural way. So, to get a good look one might end up leaving it too long...and yeah, compromising the glue.

How would you control it?
Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.

So I won't be attempting this then.

Use a cloth to apply and rub evenly. If it's not taking enough off use something more abrasive ( as others have posted ) to apply. Try not to inhale any, it's orrible crap.
