I've never done this before.
Now I'm sure that for some of you, this is the way to go and you wouldn't think about trying it any other way, but for me... this is just strange.
This is the first model that I've painted in pieces or sub-assemblies or whatever you want to call them. And I'm only doing it like this because I need to mail this monster to my client when it's done and I don't want it to break in the mail, (that's how it ended up like this).
I have to be honest though, it has been nice to work on it like this and I'm probably going to do it again with any other big models I get to do. It does make it easier to get things painted and handling the model overall is a bit easier too.
