No kidding- years ago, when I considered scratchbuilding a double ended plow, I thought about embossing all those rivets and ran away!
Adding the decal rivets took about three hours per plow. It didn't even approach being tedious!
I'm waiting for the paint to dry on the couplers as I write this. Aside from installing the couplers, both plows are complete. I hope I'll be able to take builder's photos today. It's a beautiful sunny day out, but the wind will have to die down before I risk taking the models outside.
