  7. Hi, I have a number of WWII battleships and was wondering what is the best method for painting the deck. Is it easier to glue everything together, spray it all gray and then hand paint the deck or am I best masking/spraying the different areas prior to gluing the pieces together ? Would the approach be different for larger ships such as 1/350 ? Any advice would be much appreciated Cheers, Simon
