    Just ordered a riveter tool from these guys:

    UMM-USA Unique Master Models

    Anybody ever use one?

    I'm going to do a C-75 (Boeing 307 Stratoliner in military service) in 1/48 and it will need to be covered in rivets.

    There's a You Tube by Brett Green where he shows how to use it on a 109 model. I linked to the series but it's gone AWOL. Let me see if I can find it later tonight.

    It is very easy to use. First of all you have to check the rivet interval.Then use a sprocket wheel of a correct diameter to get the same interval or the close one to the rivet gauge in scale. For rivet lines that run on flat surfaces and along straight lines you can use a ruller or draw lines with a pencl firstly.On bended surfaces use strips of a masking tape to keep a rivet line on the curvature. Don't press the tool too strongly That's all.
