Ok, my biggest problem on this was creating rivets. I had seen it done with pin heads or cut up plastic. But they all seemed well hard work. One day whilst with the missus in a craft shop I has an epiphany.... SEQUINS.. they would be perfect... so next came the mildly expensive testing phase. The anotomically correct ones had a problem though. Once covered with paint you could barely make them out. what you wanted was something that LOOKED like plate steel had been added
These ones worked great in the end
Bling indeed. Next was to mark up the bolt holes and work away.
and the roof
Perfect.. All Van-Jazzled up now...
