Very nice.

But your rivets seem to be smaller than some screws shown on a water tank in a different topic.
That's not right is it? :wink: :wink: :wink:

Well, I used Archer tank car rivet decals that are sold as O scale........maybe the others are just a little oversize, :wink:

Have to say that I like using these a lot! I'll be using these for some tank car projects that I have lined up in the future.

Mr. Firefly:
Can't tell from your pics, but did you apply the Archer rivet decals over bare wood, or is there a sealer of some kind applied before?
Anyway, nice work.

The containers carry the rivets and they are polypropylene - Archer rivets directly on that material post gloss coat and then red paint applied
