Re: Rivets

Hi Bob
I am looking at my instructions for the universal Carrier and there are NO 5mm rivets.
So I do not understand your postings about 5mm rivets.

The list states 1.6mm rivets 10 off and 2.5mm rivets 210 off .

What tool have you received ? Can you post a picture?

Regards

Derek

Re: Rivets

Hi Bob
1.6mm is 1/16 of an inch and the other rivets are 2.5mm which is near enough 3/32 of an inch to the best of my memory
rivet snaps for those sizes should be near enough.
Rivets are measured by the shaft size not the head size I hope this helps.

Re: Something with 406mm main armament

Hi David
You are going to need a big bath for that one :shock:
I have a 1:128th scale Rodney and that takes 2 of us to lift it and its
only about 6 feet long.

Seriously though a stunning build :D

Re: Armorpax's Armortek UC - No.18

Hi Dave
Looking very good a fast build for sure.
I was wondering if you had any plans to do decals for the dash board dials ?
Its a shame non were supplied in the kit like there were in the Famo kit
as its an open top machine.
