Mainly 1/48th scale, though I have been known to dabble in 1/72nd on occasion. You?

C-130s The Rivnut part grabbed my attention. nutserts are much more pedestrian!


Current Volvos:
1998 V70 T5, 112k sat 5 years, still in mechanical coma (finally at the top of the pile )
2004 XC90 T6 AWD: 186k, 60 on transaxle ( traded in )
1998 POS70 N/A: DD/training aid, 236k but really about 240k, I think...ABS module( passed on to son who sold it)

That's cool, as I was growing up it was my dream to fly C130s. It may just be down to language variations, the US seem to more commonly refer to them as nutserts, whereas here in the UK they are almost exclusively called rivnuts. Is there some difference between the two in the US?
