Thank for the comments guys.  I am trying to come up with a plan to add rivets.  I think I will prime first, then rivet and then paint.  Wish me luck!

I tend to lose small parts when I am working multiple kits. 

I can do even better. I can loose small, and even large parts even when working on one kit!

Jo, so glad to hear from you, I warms my heart.


Ragove, it has been a challenge to keep my builds organized and keep my sanity!


The two big ones I keep in their boxes.  I only work on one at a time.

I have two with their own containers.

These three have their own drawers.

The last one has the top drawer of the tool storage three drawer container.

Oops, there are nine counting the little 105 Howitzer in the baggie at the top of this picture.
