Tackling a complex kit. June 27 2012 at 11:28 AM Owen R Auer (Login mailman7777777) Missing-Lynx members from IP address 220.127.116.11
Need some opinions on building a fairly complex kit.
I'm talking about the Hobbyboss M1070. But it pertains to any kit really.
1. Paint the pieces on the sprues? This would make gluing difficult since I would have to remove paint before gluing. I have done this before though, You would only need to touch up paint later.
2. Build and paint in sub-assemblies. This would take much longer for the build and you'd still need to glue pieces later.
3. Assemble the entire kit and paint later. But then you'd really have a tough job getting paint to those out-of-the -way areas.
4. Build an Aurora monster kit and hand paint it.(My front porch, early 60's)
I'm leaning towards option 4.
