Hi,

I have built one of those with my own paint scheme and it's totally doable. For your information, you will have to paint it in lots of sub-assemblies and probably use a lot of tape or masking agent (depending on your paint scheme). Thanks to the polycap joints, it's easy to do and assemble it after you are done.

Anyway, good luck with this build which reminds me I should buid another one!

Cheers,
Chris
