Maybe scale but note that every aircraft have its own rivet dimensioning. So before any start work on rivets, you need to analyze close up images of particular aircraft ;)

That trumpeter riveter is a piece of crap.If you want to buy some great riveter tools look for 3d detail they are only several euros more expencive but are lightyears ahead of this one.

I don't know how I miss this detail... well, draken35 is excellent modeler and authors of many articles (published in magazines too). Also he work prototype models for the manufacture (enough for his portfolio?). He clam this tool as good and you said absolute opposite.

Would you be kind to explain this please?

To be honnest, I have not really used the Trumpeter riveter; just tried it on a test piece (a biplane wing). That was OK. I tried with a dymo band as guide. Honestly I'm satisfied with the result, but once again, I don't have riveted an entire airplane yet...
