Hauk

I will need build you a small rivet press to punch the "rivets" into the etches;  would save you a lot of time and ....................... lots of money.

having said that the work as always is superb.

An very generous offer! Wink
But I just love those turned rivets... To me, they look far better than punched rivets, and they add to the structural integrity of the model. I will also try to make a few real riveted connections to keep everything firmly together during further construction.
The rivets cost a little (app. 8 cent a piece), but it is an indulgence I treat myself to!

But if you ask my shrink, he will probably claim it has something to do with not having a toy like this as a kid:

Hello Hauk,

again impressive what you're doing. I can confirm to you I also love the studs inserted. I also use wires, which I then round off from both sides. This has the advantage that the rivet heads on both sides are the same size and thus look even better as really riveted.

Oh, yes there will be rivets!
I use turned brass rivets from several different sources (including Scale Hardware, me thinks). And it is really not that much work.

Beautiful Hauk.   I also use Scale Hardware nuts and rivets. Spendy, as you say but save a lot of additional hand work.
