Very nice Kent some simply but very affective methods used here a joy to watch unfold.

A question what is the make of the rivet tool you are using I have never seen that type wouldn't mind one of those myself.

Thanks for your kind words Guy.

The tool I use for this kind of work is called a Pounce Wheel, it's made by Excel and they come in different sizes.

I think they are available in most online Hobby Shops and on 'Evil' bay...

Lovely looking Tiger Moth, Kent. 

 

Another great scheme you have chosen which you certainly don't see often, or better yet, never.  

Well done so far. 

 

I just love these older vintage kits seeing the light of day again with a touch of modern thrown in..

that is absolutely stunning - I always wanted to have a go at this kit but I could not have turned one out as good as this one is

 

I really like the markings too - my mother is Danish so I have a real soft spot for anything like this :)
