This looks interesting. Is this some kind of "rivet mask" or applicator?

It's the HGW rivet set. Wet transfers which leave rivets. I am comparing ways to make rivets.

HGW positive rivets set for this specific kit.. definitely not correct on many places. Also the size of the side decals leaves a lot to be desired. Missing lines for which the extra lines are not meant in my opinion. Lines which don't line up between upper and lower decals. I am hoping these will show up subtly after the paint..

Let's see how it'll look after the paint.
And thanks for explaining. 👍

I was going to look into getting some Fw190 HGW rivets but seeing how you have had problems with them. I might now reconsider.

I would suggest to try at least one yourself..

The FW set may be different.
So far I like the idea, but it is a lot of work and it really needs some ever so light sanding of i our paintwork with the risks involved.

Thank you Gary! I haven't done much mottling to now, especially not this small.
