The Reader Writes:
HOW TO MAKE "RIVET" PAPER "Recently I re-covered JlUmbcr2G79 box cnr with cardbonrd sides.. Thin strips of bass wood were UBcU for roof ribs and catwalk. A rivet effect was obtnincd by removing the ribbon from my typewriter and punching n cries of pcrioils on n sht of paper. The paper WIlS turned o\'er, so that the tYllcwritcr marks protruded, and glued to the cardbonrd. The result WIlS very reulistic, after being painted and lettered." John Thompson, 29 SWllrtson Court, Albllny, New York

A BOOST FOR TWEIVE ISSUES "I have just received my October November issue of Model Builder. I think it's the best on the market in its field. I ulso am one of your many subscribers who think that Model Builder should be published through out the yenr. I know that in the sum mer, when there is no school, I have plent)' of time to work on my rail road, and I need the ideas that your magazine gives so well. Personally, I fnvor "0" g-uuge. I would appre ciate letters from other "0" gauge railroaders lind would like to get in touch witll somc other 16-'enr old boys who hnve their own model rail roads." Ronald A.
