Thanks Barney, much appreciated.

Impressed with both technique and the drawings ...... What programme are you using ?

Oh and one more question to glue the nuts in place with a solvent or super glue

Gordon - mainly super-glue when its just the head of the rivet or nut - only use MEK when using the sprue and hole method
What "Program" are you having me on ! old school here a pencil and a piece of paper  - photo into the Apple thing and type the words on the photo

Remember if you cut those little b******* in a clear plastic bag which your wife brought her dry cleaning home they won't become ballistic entities which vanish into the void.  Same trick for small springs. It works quite simply when you insert a medium sized cardboard box into the bag and drape the front down over your arms. For regular use, spray paint the interior white.
