Looking great! But you're going to have your work cut out with the rivets!

Thumbs up Like icing a piece of cake....

Hi Ken,

I have had good results using a syringe to apply PVA adhesive to form rivet heads, you can thin the glue with water to get the perfect consistency and prevent peaks from forming. Follow a rule or other straight edge to keep the rank and file look,

It takes forever but looks great
