To me there are two kinds of "rivet counters". One is the guy who simply likes to build his own models as accurately as possible. Nothing wrong with that!

The other is the kind everyone hates, the kind that gives "rivet counting" a bad name. This is the guy who looks for nits to pick in other people's work. I'm not talking about constructive criticism, either. More like, you show him a museum quality model built completely from scratch that took thousands of hours, and he insists that "it's not a very accurate model because there should be 1438 rivets on a tender of this type. You're short two rivets." Or the drivers are a half scale inch too large, etc. etc.


Yeah the second type are the ones who get up my nose. Its curious too they only ever critisise but can never meet their own exacting standards.....
