I like that you cut out the wheels. You have already exceeded the average modelers build of this. ;)

Love the looks!! What did you use for rivets? Punch? as they are very nicely rounded as they should be!

I would call it HOLE PUNCH ... and that is the BEST SET I have ever seen!!!
X2 on the punch kit!! Secrets of the trade!! It is really quite an excellent job you have done. ;)

Did some research on these tools. You can search for diamond beading tools on amazon and you will find these. Beware, what you find on amazon are cheap tools that are not good for jewelry work, but would probably work great for paper. When a diamond is set into prongs in a setting, a ring for example, the prongs are bent to grasp the diamond gem. The beading tool, rounds off the top of the prong. These are not punches but have round dimples in the tips. They can also be used to put the dimples in the setting around a gem. Goldsmiths use them for that purpose.

Thanks for introducing us to this tool as it is exactly what I have needed in my model work. I will be buying some of these.

Very nice, and colorful. It looks like it was store purchased, and pre-assembled. From the pictures, it looks like a train. There is no telling what it is made of. Great job! :)
