true, but I've gotten so used to being able to paint the parts separately,
I'd nit-pick. You know, "Ach, I missed this spot here, but it's really hard
to reach, maybe if I just, dammit, I got blue on the part that's supposed to
be white, where's that knife?" and so on.

But, it's worth a try. Just have to finish building a few others first.
