This got burried in another thread - who posted the how-to on making a rivet look on a car?

I recollect they used a Taildragger - I believe... can't find it in the search.

there is another option that just came out i do believe micromark sells some sheets of decals, however the rivits are 3d and raised up! which is very cool and would make things much faster! but here is a link to these if you dont want to make each rivit by hand and have each rivit the same size...
http://www.micromark.com/ho-scale-decals-with-raised-3d-rivets-and-other-surface-details,9968.html

i know its HO scale but they should work just fine for 1/64. i have seen another method to do rivits as well and that is drill a dimple, then fill dimple with your epoxy or whatever and then should all be even sized because of the dimple... hope this helps!

also forgot to add there is another place you can find stuff such as diamond plate look, weld beads stuff like that. they make these i guess by bonding a resin to decal film so its 3d which is really cool! anyways worth a look! http://www.archertransfers.com/SurfaceDetailsMain.html
