Welcome to Large Scale Modeller: The home of the large scale military model builder.

Rivet-R Mini has left me speechless!

Recommended Posts

I felt I needed to write a little blurb here right now. 

I’ve used rivet tools before, but I’ve always been less than overwhelmed by their performance. 

After doing reconstructive surgery on my F-5F, in desperation I turned go this little beauty.  The results are simply outstanding!!!

Radu, you just saved me many tedious nights of poking pins in plastic. Thank you!

RB Riveter restored 80% of these and they look factory perfect

As do a lot of their stuff. Place an order any way, and they will get it made. You might wait a while, but at least you will be on the "list".

Thank you for the link, but still showing -49 inventory.

Mega Hobby had some in stock, I got one, four round and four corner wheels.

 

I used it for the first time on the B-24 wing spar, it worked very well!

It’s my new favorite tool. Seriously, I love mine more everyday.

You made me do this Ernie!!!     I have since used the heck out of these tools and wonder how I worked some of my prior modeling challenges without them.

Yessir.  I'm sold on the stuff. I'm the same way.  In Phoenix last year, Radu gave me some samples to try. Most of them sat on my bench in plain view for weeks, maybe months before, in need of a miracle, I tried them.  I'm sold!
