For rivets on gussett plates I just apply small circles punched out with the leather punch.  I use an old star wheel type punch that has about 8 or 10 different size holes.

That looks pretty good to me ... I am going to give that a try.

Since I will need 134 small NBW castings for this one structure alone, scratch building them would be too time consuming. The rivet idea seems more doable. First, I will need to find a suitable leather punch.

For future projects, I'll try ordering NBW castings.

Moving forward, found this corrugated ribbon in a fabric shop, many years ago. Very thin with a silver finish. I used it to cover one of my mine buildings. I think it works well to represent corrugated metal siding.   Larry G

The mine building, with corrugated ribbon siding installed. Painted it with a flat finish, then a wash of diluted black ink. The windows were scratch built.  Larry G

The other side. A connecting "sky way" will be installed between the buildings.  Also, a door with a stairway needs to be built.   Larry G

Looking great Larry.  Really has the character of old mining structures.

A bit of detail has been added to the interior of the shed. More detail will be added over time. Larry G
