Update In Stash:
Lots of 1/35 Armor mainly WWII German and a few Modern British/American pieces, 1/32 Aircraft and 1/48 Aircraft. Aircraft chosen to replicate RNZAF and RAAF types through the years. Some RAF & USAF types exist also.

Starting on the riveting. This is my first attempt at doing an entire airframe. As well as the tail, I've also been doing rivets on the cowling. Finding it difficult to find any decent reference on the Raiden.

Starting to get the hang of this riveting. I use the Rivet-R tool followed by a pointed mini screwdriver. Has to be sanded after this to remove the protrusions. I've removed a couple that I stuffed up by brushing on some Mr Dissolved Putty.

No mate, she's currently buried in the cupboard of doom. I really should do some more work on it.

I bought one from our very own G2, so might crack-it-open very soon, see what I can do with it.
