I don't remember where I saw it its been a while but one guy bought some either was round head scale rivets or round head brads cant remember then clamped a bunch into his mini mill and made a run down one side then up the other and then back and forth in between to make square bolts with round heads then just glued them in place after blackeningThanks for the explication, Karl. I did also any test with wax. For my La Belle 1/36 i will use this kind of bolts. The fotos only shows the first tests but in this way i will continue. Its a Occre Nail with half round head. I used a file for the diamond head
But the clinched end on the other side i will show simplified with a diamond head. There are ca. 1200 bolts in my frames. I need to complete my work before i will do my last journey. View attachment 105377
Hello Carl. I also build Carolina. I’m going to open my topic later. I do not have a complete set of drawings and a little theoretical material, and information from an Internet is controversial. Google translation is often incorrect, so I prepared a drawing with options. Please tell me the cross-sectional shape of the board in the picture? I think this is option B.
