Beyond Rivet Counting

Steve's 009 and 09 Adventure

I’ve never tried to get my models to be 100% accurate. However, I’ve decided this will change.

From now on I am going to model every rivet on the prototype.

Additionally, I will model the rivets so that you can see which rivets were put in by a right handed riveter, and which were put in by a left handed riveter.

It is easy to spot the left handed rivet in the photograph (above) so such rivet details should be obvious on a model too.

From now on what I want the exact prototypical number of left handed and right handed rivets on my models.

I encourage every modeller to do the same.
