PM sent. It depends on which Y-Wing you're going for. I find it's easier to paint the yellow and blue bands on the engines before you attach the clamps for the the t-rods, as seen in my image below:I think I am interested, just wondering if there should be some painting that takes place during assembly or can be done after final assembly?
Otherwise you'd be masking around those clamps, and that doesn't seem like much fun. Overall, though, I think you can pretty much assemble the whole thing and then paint it up. You can see how I did it on my model in my thread here, starting on about pg 10: **COMPLETED** Y-Wing 1/48 resin model
