Thank you Dennis, I am aware of the "Archer" rivet decals. I use the harvested rivets for more custom kinds of applications like reinforcement or fish plates or when I am making my own tack boards. Anything fiddley, with unique spacing and placement.

BTW, I have found that Testors will hold them in place on resin as well as styrene

  There is a company that sells rivit decals with different spacings.  I cannot recall the company but Ted Culotta's last art. in RMC has the info on it.  I heard that they work pretty good.  Dennis

Panicked by the idea of not being able to get more 40-ft boxcars for
harvesting rivets, I contacted Athearn's Parts dept. and found it
would not be problem to get more. In addition to this backup supply
I also ordered tanks car parts to pursue kitbash project for 10K
General American tank cars inspired by RH a few years ago.

I also ordered 2 50-foot gons bodies along with their U/F's for use
at the Shake 'n Bake Bash on the Beach project coming up in a few
weeks as I wanted to work with undecs and want to do two cars if

It took about ten days or less
