Rivets

Is there something you love, something you hate, something you'd like to see? Here's the place to bring it up. And don't forget that Infamous Green Marine.

Man, those WW-I rhomboid tanks had a lot of rivets! Here's a larger image of Fuller's machine so you can see what I had
to deal with.

As you can see, I ran out of steam when I got to the tread sections and the bottom of the hull. But those are all dark,
in shadow, or both, so I figured no one would notice if 142 of them were missing...

Next I want you to draw a biplane, with all the rib stitches. :P

Thanks for your dedication to your art, Paul.

Wow! Thanks for sharing that link, Mutabilis!

Now I want something like that for the interior of the engine car with the big supercharged diesel in Episode 38 :)

Yes, I admit it: I left out the rivets on the tanks in Episode 249. Life is short...
