That sounds like an unpleasant experience. I will have to think of a
different method. There's a toll that you can buy for rivet making but it's
designed for 1/48th or larger. Not a real issue for me since I seem to be
mesmerized by all these unbuilt WW1 vacs in my storage bin.

Yes, I am taking pictures as I go. Things are moving slowly because I am
trying not to mess it up. Also, whenever I have a problem, I can phone Bob
Wheeler for advice but that leads to us wandering around off the subject and
I don't get back to the model very quickly.:) Still, it's always nice to
speak with him.
