I agree, it's the tiny things that most often set a model apart from it's peers. Sure does require patience and a steady hand though!

great work on rivets. What do you use to cut out rivets?

Right, a steady hand is most helpful, both when putting glue and when putting the rivets in place...
@ Erik - I love trains They often lend themselves well to be modeled in paper. You know that I like to build the kits using almost no "extras". It might work better for aircraft and architecture subjects but Modelik's trains, built this simple way, often yield very interesting models.
@ Olo - Most of the tools are shown in the attached picture. For small diameters, the red punchers give good results. The rivets come out slightly bulged, which is good if they are not glued upside down

Apart from the rivets, the main frame parts include many parts for the suspension gear. I hope that the pictures show it well.

The first picture shows the access steps. The others show the wheel centers, in several assembly stages.

The green cylinders make a pretty contrast to the red frame. Modelik’s steam trains are often not very colorful. In this matter, the T-3 stands out.

Super clean work Ricardo! Boring work these rivets but as is already clear from your pictures, it's extremely rewarding. Look at those cylinders!

By the way, I'm using a similar hole puncher but find it difficult to remove the punched out circle from the punch shaft without damaging it. Usually I punch partly, just enough to see the outline of the circle and then continue with the sharp point of the hobby knife to completely cut it out. But that would be disastrous in terms of time for jobs like these. How do you go about this or don't you experience such an issue?

Cheers,
Erik

@ Erik - Good subject The 1mm tool I have works properly. The rivets won’t go out by themselves, one by one, but if I cut more, the first pop out and the process can go on indefinitely. In the 1,5mm tool, they simply get stuck inside, making cutting impossible. I can cut two and force them out with a wire bit. With three, the friction is too high. Fortunately, I have another tool for those ones...

The pictures show the wheels at several assembly stages. You can see the spacers between the formers and the card jig used as a template to assemble the spokes.
