A7V rivets sizes

First I'd like to say, that its a great site with lots of informations which I couldn't find elsewere...

I'd like to know what size has rivets (especially big ones around hull) and nuts (especially connecting front plate with angled bottom one - below gun) in A7V. I searched for it, but couldn't find. I'm trying get exactly sizes of details (from photos) and rivets are good 'markers' to do this. I like to make scrach and computer 3D models, but I don't belive much in internet available blueprints.

best regards

I know that this post is over 2 years old but I may have the answer to this question kinda.


The revis back then were the size of human eye balls in diameter .


Although not exact but now you have something to compare to in any scale.


Hope this helps .

Back in the 1980s there was a project at the Queensland Museum to measure Mephisto with the objective of producing accurate drawings

for sale. From the drawings - Mephisto has:

Bolts - 30, 25 and 20mm diameter

Nuts - 35, 30 and 25mm diameter

Rivets - 30, 25 and 20mm diameter.

Studs - 25mm diameter.

If you ask (very nicely) I'll see what I can do with the 1/20 drawing of Mephisto.
