Sometimes your models may lack a little something in the detail stakes, so you may decide to add a little more in the way of surface features, panel lines and rivets. But how do you do it?
I’ve create a short video to explain the process, but thought it would be useful to also show you some detailed images on here as well, all of which are linked directly to what you will see in the video.
So now that you’ve watched the video, here are some images to go with the live action. The images are fairly self-explanatory, with short captions explaining each one. Here they are!
I always rivet my models, but rather than find it relaxing I find it incredibly tedious. But then the results far outweigh the nause.
Top tip when using Dymo tape. The tack on the sticky side goes very quickly, I stick it to Tamiya tape. As you remove it and re-apply it, it stays sticky for much longer.
Very good video! Although I must admit I’d hoped you’d pass along some secret tip that maybe I’d missed out on. I now realize I just suck at adding rivets. 🙂
