Depends on whether you paint your kit or not. If you don't paint, it's
doesn't really matter when you fill them in although I'd recommend doing
it during or after assembly, since some of the corrent designs use the
seam lines to double up as panel lines. If you paint, definitely wait
until the paint dries, which happens after assembly.

Check with the GML archives, this is a recurring thread and may be in a
FAQ somewhere. Also check out www.gundamproject.com, this may be covered
under the tech section as well.
