I'm just looking for possibilities. I have friends that build amazing 1/5 scale warbirds. They painstakingly place every single rivet by hand. Now imagine spending a couple hundred hours riveting.....

I don't think a rivet punch would work well on styrene, would it? I also don't think I can work with brass very well. I might consider using nail heads but I don't want a few giant rivets in this location. More smaller ones would be more realistic, IMHO.

That said.... Herb, would you be willing to build me one of your presses if I paid you for it?
