Rivet decals? How clever, just the thing to add subtle detail without overdoing it.

Nice scribing! And it will be more accurate than raised lines.

Endeavor to persevere David. It's going to be a beautiful model when you get done. I'm sure I'll like it even more than your egg submarine. :D

Okay, life at home is getting back under control so back to modeling. Working with the flange for the torpedo tube combustion chamber I tried some stainless steel hex nuts. When I painted them I found that they wouldn't hold paint even with a primer. At first I thought I would give up that idea. So I made a set out of plastic stock and my handy punch set. Then while casting some other parts (for another project) I thought why not cast these flanges. So I went ahead and made molds at cast both the plastic and stainless sets in resin and these are the results...

Original stainless masters. You may note that by the time I got to casting one of the nuts vanished. No worries. One more resin pour takes care of that.

Mold and finished castings. In my opinion you can't tell the difference between the plastic round punched nuts and the perfect stainless nuts without a strong magnifying glass. But it was an interesting experiment. One casting is thinner than the other. I'll try them both and see which one works out best. But I have no hesitation using either one on the finished model.

Dave;
That looks awesome, I am currently making Kapok Life Jackets out of Sculpey. I agree with Roy. So much so, I might just send you the next thing I need to cast.
Take care,
TED
