questin about airbrushes!)..
Anyways i've recieved my fist few resin kits, they are way cheap
compared to what some of you guys build (these things are only 20
bucks).. and I have a basic question as far as I am now..
that is: Do i paint parts BEFORE i finally put them together or after?
Basically some of the parts dont fit perectly, i attribute this to
being 20 dollars cheapo kits.. some of them need a.. liberal amount of
putty to fill in peices, at one arm joint of the models, i had to fill
in a huge amount to get the arm to stand straight the way it should..
what I've done so far is puttied the arm, let it dry then took it
off.. yes this does leave a very tiny crack between the puttied
area's, but i'm asuming i'm going to need to paint the under arm and
side of the character before i re-attach the arm for good or else how
do i get to those ultra fine area's?
Am i supposed to be attaching everything peramently before i paint
anything? If so, wont this make the job very hard in area's where say,
the arm comes down directly along the side of the character?'
IF I do paint the arm before attaching and the toroso, How will i keep
from getting hairline cracks between the parts i just attached? (My
asumption would be if i painted them AFTER assembly these small cracks
would be filled with the paint.. but maybe not?)
These are 1/6th resin models, about 8 or 9 inches high when fully
assembled so they arent going to be as precise and tiny as some of you
experts works :) But i'd like advice as i'm basically a newbie on this
and cant seem to find a definate answer on weather to paint first or
asemble completely first..
