As it's all going so well Armortek, what's the chance of an engine or half engine in ally for the Famo?
You guy's made such a nice job of the RR engine but maybe something a little more basic (and cheaper of course) me thinks, we the customer could then super detail with Armorpax if Daves up for it? Looking over the "Famo nuts and bolts" research there's lots of potential for Armorpax products all over the thing! :D
Sorry Phil, no plans at present to make an engine for the Famo.

Looks like the engine is back down to you then Phil? Your work on the Quad was outstanding after all.

I just read that the Tiger I Late Kit has 1480 fasteners (website). How is it possible to have so many more?

Is it because the chassis and body are separate?

How are the rivets intalled, do they require a tool?

There are quite a few rivets - just over 800 of them - but quite a few other fasteners as well.

No tool required. The rivets are decorative and can be glued in place ... they do not carry any load.

Ok, interesting. One more question. What type of glue do we use? I am going to need to stock up!
