I used to just hate working on Airbus as they had their own metal and rivet specs and obtaining them France ate up a lot of time, but that was 25 years ago when their presence was still small, probably better now

My father was airframe certified in the RAF on all the V bombers and latterly working for DeHavilland on the Comet 4C.

A crucial decision in our family future was made shortly after he married my mother where he was offered a job at Boeing on the 747 project, but my mother didn't want to leave all her family behind to emigrate, so I ended up being born a Brit and growing up in the land of expensive gas and small capacity, low power engines... which for a drag racing hot rod'er has been a damn shame.

You mentioned utilizing brass rivets. Have you thought about galvanic corrosion? I admit it would look amazing. Interior possibly. Though exterior exposed to the weather extra care would be required. I would not leave this outside exposed to the elements year around. I would also ensure a quality wax or sealant would be used to lower galvanic corrosion. Hate to see such a beauty of craftsmanship deteriorate due to corrosion.
