Requires javascript

To avoid losing the rivet heads, it is best to cut them from the sprue inside a clear polythene bag. Hold the knife at an angle, and cut down the "slope" of the rivet towards the base. This will reduce the likelihood of leaving part of the feed attached. To apply, draw a pencil line along the rivet line's position and mark even-spaced (or as on the prototype) lines across the rivet line. Regularly spaced and straight lines of rivets will look far better than uneven and wandering ones, even if there aren't the same number as the prototype. Pick the rivet head up with the point of a sharp knife or scalpel and position. Apply a small drop of solvent, which should flow under the rivet head and hold it in place. If using a thicker type, such as "Liquid poly" or Revell "Contacta Pro", it should be possible to put the drop of solvent on the rivet's position, and then press the rivet head down on top of it.
