Is there any disadvantage to spraying stuff thats still on the sprue before putting it all together?
And is it much easier to paint a model before actually making it?

Well if you get paint on the areas where glue will be applyed it will have a hard time to stick.
And the onr no one ever seems to mention? If you paint it, then clip it out, you will have lots of grey dots where the joiners were, so I never do it.

Not to mention cleaning the flash off the parts before you put them together... All youd end up doing is scraping the paint off in long lines... Better to clean it then assemble. I usually assemble everything but guns and backpacks, except where the arms are attached to the weapon, then I do the arms separately as well.

seems easier, but your better of cleaning them all up then spraying them, i assemble all the mini unless its a bit i cant get to paint easy, say behind a leg or arm, just leave that off and paint before assembly
