    Alternator Prime is a pain and a half to disassemble and paint. Jebus friggin H. I took the whole blasted thing apart and have TONS of parts and it wasn't an easy disassembly either. I have taken apart 3 apts and this one takes the cake. Anyone who has done a Prime kitbash gets extra points now that I know how hard it is.

    Oh, and to top it off, the paint I spreayed wasn't completely dry as I thought it was. The parts ended up sticking to the paper I sprayed on. When I pulled them off, I got little white spots. I washed most off but now have to spray one more coat. AND I can't even get the turpenoid to wash off the parts to restart. Stupid non-testor paint.

    II wasn't so stoked about this and aggrivated at how hard it is to take this guy apart, I'd just get a new one and start again.

    I almost thought you were going to say "and I have parts left over"

    That still may be the case when I put it back together
