Scale RC Rivets & Screws Video

Scale RC Rivets & Screws Video

Master modeler Phil Noel knows aircraft rivets and screws. After retiring from the full-size aviation industry, his company Pinnacle Aviation custom-builds composite model kits as well as offering painting, weathering and repair service. In this video, he shows how he creates rivets on and applies scale screws to a Comp-ARF Spitfire and a Jet Legends L-39 Albatross.  Thanks to Pete and Dean Coxon for filming this tutorial. (Stick with this one; after a slow start, the video does show some neat scale techniques!)


  1. Hi there I have Hangar 9 Pitts Special 1/3 and I like to buy about 3mm circular colored bright aluminium rivet make sticker. Material thin tape

  2. Phil, do you have any recommendations for making flush rivets on a foam warbird, for instance a FW-190A. Thanks.

  3. I am building a 1/8 scale ( 7 foot wing span } Avro Anson for the Claresholm Museum Claresholm Alberta Canada. I am using Iron on covering and would be interested in making it more realistic with raised rivets. Will this work, and where can I buy them ? preferably in Canada, or if necessary,on line. The only ones I can find on line are for very small plastic models.
