i was looking at some pictures, and it looks that the new generation jetrangers may not have all the rivets on the back section of the fuse anymore...am i wrong?
i have attached the pic that got me wondering, it looks like the back end is mostly composite.

The rivets are to small to see in the pic. You will rarely find a scale fuselage with scale size rivets because then the rivest would be so small.
As far as the full size jet ranger, There is a frame which the skin/panels attach to. As far as I know, they are still using rivets and for access panels, they are still using screws.

i am not sure about the jetrangers, but i know for a fact that the bell 407 back fuselage is carbon fiber.

yep, i knew about the 407...that's why i started wondering. i read that bell is re-opening its jetranger production, will be interesting to see if they will go composite.
btw, i did find a pic of the heli i am modeling it clearly shows rivets (problem solved) but it would be nice to get input from someone that may know, i am interested now.
