    Assembling & painting a Trukk

    Is it better to assemble and then paint a trukk or should I paint first and then assemble?

    I think it is in general a matter of personal preference. For me I tend to like to put the main bulk together and then add the smaller bits after I painted the larger part. Those small pieces are the ones that make it awkward to paint or leave little hollows that become really hard to get to and all.

    It also depends on what kind of paint scheme you were going for. If you were painting a mainly black trukk then I'd say put it together first, undercoat it black and go for broke from there. But if it's something like Evil Sunz or Bad Moonz then it's probably better to paint the trukk pieces indivdually overall, stick the trukk together, then paint some larger decals across a few of the armour plates to draw it all together.

    I'm also putting together a set of Trukks, I have built the Trukk into three main sections: The chasis (engine, wheels, ram), the bed (plank, grabber, back wall), and the cab (driver, controls, gunner, wreking ball). This seems how I will do the set. I am painting a Evil Sunz scheme, so as chatawax says unless you're going black, break it up into sections.

    Thanks for the advice! Sounds like a plan. That's what I'll do; build the main sections & paint before adding all the bits.
