    Getting ready to tsart the cockpit. What steps would you recomend as far as putting it together and finishing? Do I completely build it up and then prime, paint base color, then pick out the details? Or, do I paint the pieces then build it? I know it's a nube question.
    Thanks.
    P.S. I have Eduard pe and Aries resin details.

    Build and paint in sub-assemblies, whenever you can.
    Details are best painted when you can get at them the easiest, you can always scrape some paint away from a gluing surface and touch-up later.
