- bandwagoner alert -
In anticipation of apocalypse, I've been saving towards getting me some groovy IG tanks and making me a tank co. or something similar. I like the IG tanks quite a bit, but i think that the rivets on the tanks are just too big and look a bit funny, and i was hoping to remove them in some way.
from experience with the kits (I've never actually seen one up close in the flesh), how hard would it be to remove all the rivets off IG tanks? and how would you recommend doing it, in under 2 years )
i would just get some files and start filieing should take around 10minutes a tank. I use gale force 9 files the small ones they work wonders.
The most dangerous men in the world are the ones who have nothing to lose.
for removing rivets from flat surfaces you can also use a very thin bladed knife, like a stanley knife and just shave them off... i find that that is the cleanest way to do it

Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

I recommend your exacto knife with one of the blades sharpened in the front only, these blades are built just for that sort of thing.
I use an X17 or an X19 blade for this and it works quickly
They're ladies. We can't hit ladies.
No, no. They're Daemonettes. They'll tear you limb from limb and steal your soul
But sar, thats what ladies do.
I'd probably just scrape them away with a regular modelling knife if I wanted to get rid of them, but I happend to like the rivets, they give the tanks the WW1 feeling too them that I think fit so well into the whole 40k universe.
