Now that is some building there Sarah. The bolts, are they just plastic glued on or something else entirely? They look great. I figured I'd ask as someone is bound to anyway.

Hi Dave,

I use .060 x .060 styrene strips and cut the old fashioned nuts with "the chopper". Corresponding washers are being punched with the punch and dye tool by RP Toolz. Very handy tool that I expanded with some bigger diameter holes where I simply use a worn drill bit as the punch.

I made bigger nuts and bolts than would found in reality, they are a bit over sized. I think they look better on the model but that's just my personal taste. See pics of the original rivet size in my earlier post. I like the bigger ones better, they make the model more physical in appearance.
