I started adding the portholes and I built a mess of deck guns; link

Generally I coat them with either super glue or my old standby, Titebond wood glue, on previous projects this has worked very well, particularly when I use acrylics.

Quite the process. Looking forward to seeing the finished article.

Great work. What is the pink stuff in the bottle that you are using for rivets?

Somebody else on these boards suggested it, it is a special thick paint for marking T-shirts, I got it at Michael's but you could probably get it from Hobby Lobby or any other major Arts & Crafts supplier. The brand name is "Scribbles"

Very impressive work.

Couldn't you just spray paint them (black enamel) to get a good clinging layer and then paint acrylics for additional coats of paint?

In my experience the spray paint doesn't get into all the nooks and crannies, plus the wood glue (Titebond) seals the wood as well as strengthening the joints (these are wargaming toys after all) and it is dirt cheap as well!
