Thank you! Rivets are so much better looking than screws, but really not nearly as versatile. So many fasteners out there, just aviation riveting works for now :)

Yeah, I age/oxidize as oppose to paint, natural coloring, each piece takes a life of its own. Thanks!

It *does* make it look very realistic. I wish I could do that too! unfortunately I'm not that much into metallics and have to take refuge with paint, even if real oxidation would be one thousand times better! Count yourself lucky!

You can get metal paint, like paint that is metal, ages, rusts, oxidizes, etc. For example: [link]

Lots of neat tricks to metal paints that are cool!

So you used paint and no real metal?

I only use metal and no paint, metal is the only thing strong enough for mechanical stuff, everything else just breaks sooner than later. Just pointing out that there are options out there for those who do not use metal :) Me thinks metal paint on metal might be neat though, but I think plating would be a better bet. Just it is cool that people can paint metal now :)
