Laser cut vinyl rub-on rivets


Two dozen sheets of .06" diameter by .30" spaced laser cut vinyl rivets for sale. There are 1200 rivets per sheet. These would be perfect for most 80-90 inch span warbirds such as the popular Top Flite Giant Scale series as well as many others. These rivets are burnished aluminum in color which provides a perfect base for weathering purposes if you are so inclined. They can either be put on and then painted over or you can put them on top of you're already finished model. A clear coat is recommended in the case of the latter particularly if using gas or glow for power. Below is a YouTube video showing the application process which is accomplished with clear Scotch type tape as the transfer medium. With a bit of practice it is possible to transfer 12-15 inches of rivets or more at a time. Price is $5 per sheet and shipping is $5 per order for domestic orders. Shipping outside the USA is available at additional cost. Many other diameters, spacings, and colors are available. Please contact me at cwveich@cwvmodels.com for more information.

Thanks!

Here is what they look like when painted over



For really consistent button head rivets you can put a drop of glue on top of the vinyl

The listed price is per sheet as described in the text at the bottom of my original post. Shipping is an additional $5 and that is per order, whether you buy one sheet or all 24. Sorry if I did not make that clear! I have edited my original post to move the pricing information to the top of the add rather than clear down at the bottom. Hopefully that will prevent further confusion.

Hello Chad,
Can you give me an idea of how many sheets I would need to complete an FMS P-51, ME-109 and a Zero all with a 1400mm wind span and then a Freewing wing ME 262 (think its about 1400mm also).
Thank you

Just ordered 12,000 rivets of these for my FMS P-51. What a great guy, took time to answer my questions and explained everything. Treated me like I spent $12,000.00. Would recommend him to anyone interested
