RC Workshop Secrets — Scale Aircraft Rivets & Screws Video

RC Workshop Secrets —  Scale Aircraft Rivets & Screws Video

UK 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. It is really nice to be able to see how the scaling is done, I read about it all the time the video really makes the difference.

    1. Glad you found the video useful Chuck

  2. Nice video. I can’t imagine having the steady hands he has. I also can’t imagine where he found a vinyl cutter that would make such tiny cuts as those on the screw heads.

    1. Pretty sure you’ll find that was done with a laser cutter.

  3. any other videos from pinnacle aviation?
