I was just wondering is it better to paint and seal a figure complete or is it better to paint and seal the parts and then reasemble them?

Dullcote is very good, but very strong. I use the Testors ModelMasters Matte coat. and the Fantasy Vallejo paints are badass!!! great paint to work with.

One of the nice things about painting and resealing just the parts, and not a complete figure, is that you never have to worry about missing a spot, or getting excess paint on the wrong limb. Things won't get in your way.

thats pretty much what I was thinking, like painting & sealing the body first then attaching the arms/legs/head, then painting and sealing them and then a couple more coats to seal the whole thing.

I would probably at least seal the areas that will have joint rub before putting it back together since you can't reach them after reassembly.
