    Hello Jim,

    I thought that to her would laugh if you see something like that.
    This my first attempt airplane is to be built.

    I am always enthusiastically from pictures our colleagues here presented already have. I am so gladly here and I look the masterpieces
    The airplanes of Ron and other colleagues are simply a class!
    The ship of Barry is a premium work, nicely and clean.
    I am glad that I has got to know you.

    Here still a few photos of Arado 196 before the airplane hall and on the catapult.

    With the best greetings
    Scorpio

    Arado 196

    Apart from this being one of my favourite aircraft and having built a couple of 1/400 scale from Zio which are wonderful designs themselves, that is awesome if it was not for your fingers in the photo I would have said it was 1/48.

    ps Cogratulations on your double success picture of the week on both this site and Kartonwork.

    pozdrawiam Scorpio

    Scorpio,

    Wunderbar! You have reached printer resolution limits..., Seeing the Arado 196 in context AND with folded wings is almost too much..., Congratulations!

    Best regards, Gil

    Hello,

    Rivets plastically emphasize from Saburo

    I lay the part on a glass of disc with printed side down and under the disc I put a light streams. Then with pencil I sign who put where they rivet are pressed.
    Then I press them rivets from. Importantly is present which may the untermatt one, be too soft not and not be too hard. I take always 1 mm gray cardboard. For small rivets I take dull needle and for big rivets I use a Japanese ball writing implement type "PILOT".

    years and years ago I saw something similar in Aeromodeler using cog wheels from clocks to make evenly spaced rivet marks on planes.

    amazing what you forget

    Great idea!

    I've also seen pounce wheels used for the same effect. They are fairly easy to find, but I doubt the spines will line up well with printed rivets.

    Thanks for sharing your skill and creativity Scorpio.
