That is true, was using Mirce rivets, http://www.nsmodelers.rs/mirce-finish-set---rivets, which are very easy to use but are designed for airplanes and aren't very deep so after a little paint they sort of disappear, then when building the Mason Bogie I was placing a drop of super glue on top for depth which gave the desired look but trying to get the same amount of glue on each rivet was iffy at best. On Old Joe I used the Mirce rivets for location but placed half sided 2mm beads on top. A little time consuming and difficult with my shaky hands but was the best I have been able to come up with so far, am open to suggestions. picture is of the glue method, Bill
