Giles-

Superb look you have created, and BTW I really like the Fowler loco as a prototype, but how do you manage to sand around all the rivets without breaking through the original finish? I know that the stock answer is "very carefully'' but there are hundreds of rivets on thet model, and I don't see any evidence of brass (or whatever the model is made of) showing through. The only way that I would even try to accomplish this would be with a soft toothbrush, and some fine abrasive paste, or liquid.Even then, I could forsee problems with breaking through the finish.

Please tell us more!


Herb
