POLL DESCRIPTION

When you assemble a figure, sometimes the assembly creates a "tight space" in the final model, like the space behind a sheild held closely to the body, or the space between the legs and mount of a mounted figure. I find it hard to get my clumsy paintbrush in recesses like that. Sometimes (based on the testfit) I will paint then glue, other times, glue then paint. Even without a tight space, painting separate can help keep the border between two parts cleaner (like where a fuselage and wing meet, or in an armpit), since you don't have to "cut in" the corner. Then again, it's easier to hold and paint a head if it is already attached to a body. Under what conditions do you "paint then glue"?
