More of my 1/48 Scale AH-64 Apache Helicopter.

My first photo shows one of my scribing tools which also doubles as a "rivet" maker.
I draw lines on the model, then use my ruler to line up all the rivets to be put in, then make pencil marks on the kit plastic. I just push in the needle point and presto there is a recessed rivet. I only had to do this about 700 times or so. When finished, I sanded the model with 600 grit sandpaper, then mask off the windows and applied my paint.
