  1. A Pair Of 68 Darts

    The only competition is to do the best and keep improving your abilities😎if you are happy with it, then it is a winner!
  2. A couple of points that I omitted: 1) The diameter of the tube or rod should closely match the desired diameter of the rivets. 2) RC56 is more viscous than Elmers so it typically produces a taller (half-round) rivet head.
  3. 1967 Mercury Puma GT

    awesome work. Looks just as if Ford (Mercury) would have done it!
  4. Rivets can also be made with white glue and a small wire or hypodermic needle tube. Pick up a small drop of white glue on the end of the wire or tube and deposit it onto previously marked rivet locations. With practice they can be made surprisingly uniform. If you mess up, a damp cloth wipes them away cleanly. I have had best results applying the rivets after primer and prior to color coat. My prefered glue is RC56 which is made for clear canopies on radio controlled aircraft but regular Elmers works as well.

    Cant wait to see where this one goes!

    My local Hobby Lobby carries the K-S rods and tubing as well. Take a piece of suitable diameter with you for comparison to make sure that you get the right sizes but it is cheap enough to buy a variety of sizes as John says...so versatile and handy to have around.
