    Default Laser Cut Modeling

    I know that the standard procedure has been to paint items FIRST and then assemble, but I've found that you don't have to worry much about warpage of pieces if you paint AFTER you assemble. Of course, it takes a pretty steady hand. If you're good with a brush, just assemble the model and paint it afterward. If you make a mistake, don't sweat it, you can touch it up after it dries. I've used all kinds of paints to do this - oil and water based - and haven't had to worry about warpage.

    I also assemble models with super glue. Walmart sells very inexpensive small brush packages, I typically use them or a toothpick to apply the glue. Really speeds up the process.
