I'm in desperate need of a cheap and easy way of doing rivets. I've seen people use tiny plastic balls but i've got no idea where they came from.
Just wondering what you guys have been using. If you can throw me a few ideas or links to companies that sell anything like that i'd appreciate it.
Get some plastic rods from whoever sells plasticard. Chop 'em up, glue them on, done!
Of course, if you want rounded rivets then that could be more difficult.
You can do rivets with green or grey stuff and a mechanical pencil.
Take the lead out of the mechanical pencil. The tip now makes a tiny mold for rivets (it is small and round). From there you just put a little green stuff everywhere you want rivets, press the mould into place and use a sculpting knife to clean off the extra green stuff.
This is more work than the plasticard though. I'm thinking that it might be possible to find round plasticard bits, but I'm not sure if I've seen some that were the right size.
Either a) use the heads of pins, i buy tins for about 50p.
b) Brother Argos used some on his steel legion tanks, just ask him. He gets small template things which he just puts empty sprue through.
