HGW models has released a 1/48 scale decal set replicating the raised rivets on the Bf109G-6
”Complete pack of positive rivets for Bf109G-6. Riveting sets from HGW Models give to surfaces of plastic kits highly realistic look. We recommend to apply them under the paint and when your model is painted just polish the surface to make the accessory visible. Suitable for Tamiya kit.
In general, riveting sets serve for riveting of plastic model aircraft kits. By using HGW sets it takes cca 3 hours to rivet whole aircraft in 1:32 scale and 2 hours for 1:48 scale. Result is completely precisely riveted model kit which is prepared for painting and any other final works. We used Japanese documents for preparation of our riveting sets - seemed to be the most serious. The biggest problem was to harmonize the form of real aircraft with its minimized form which is different depending on the variety of producers. For this reason you don´t have to modify (abrade/cut/whatever) any part of your plastic model. We´ve been worked with 0,1 mm tolerance and it just fits perfectly.

INSTRUCTIONS
●Clean model surface by wet cloth. Optional undercoat is Mr. Surfacer 1000 or Base White.
●Cut each design out of decal sheet and dip them in warm water (30 - 40°C) for 10 - 15 seconds.
●Check with finger tip if design loose on base paper. If so place it in proper position on model and slide of base paper leaving design on model.
●Apply Mr. Mark Softer for undercoat. Move design to exact position with wet fingertip and push out excess of Mr. Mark Softer, water and air bubbles which are under the decal - use soft cotton cloth.
●Let the decal dry for cca 2 hours.
●Unstick the foil carefully and wash marks caused by trasfer glue.”

I'm pretty sure the 109 was flush riveted, and often puttied and sanded smooth. So...why?
