Hi guys,
I'm doing a yellow AC p40 and I am having trouble finding out if the rear parts of the plane are flush or brazier head rivets. I guess everyone who took pictures always wants the nose in the shot.
I realize that the bulk of the rivets are flush on this plane but it was, and still is, common to see the aft fuselage and some other aft areas[aside from stab L/E] in brazier.
Any help will be much appreciated.

Went to airliners.net looked at the real ones, it looks like the rivets are ALL countersunk

Re: P40e

All the photos I can find seem to confirm that, at least, the overwhelming bulk of the riveting is flush. Thanks gents.
I may take a little artistic liscence in a few areas such as the rivets that hold tailwheel door hinges on. I think in one of the pics I can see a line of brazier heads there.
The P-40 site will be great to get all the lines in place.
