There are two areas on the fuselage that should be corrected before adding rivets.
The blast plate aft of the upper turret is oversize. It is molded the same size as the fore plate. Below are photographs supplied by the Ventura Memorial Flight Association. The red/white markings are one inch.
The other area are the nose gun blast plates. The molding reflects the window that was added there by Spartan.
This is a much easier fix; fill, sand and engrave the proper panel line. Photograph below shows the correction on the right.
Great pics, thanks. Now the question is how to add the "raised" rivets, if at all..
