Some of you may already know of this stuff but for those who don't or those who are considering.............
This is real nuts, bolts, washes and rivets made as tiny minatures. You can get working or simulated. Great for detailing or just leaving on the workbench in a dio.
There are varying sizes but at this point I have found 0.5 and 0.7 to be good for typical 1/35 tank nuts and bolts. I originally found these looking for hex sprue, now I just use these. The simulated ones have nuts fixed on shafts that you just dop into an appropriately drilled hole. Wink
Cool Non simulated are real and actually screw up. There are brass, stainless stell and nickel plated choices. They are amazing.......sorry about the bad photos - THESE ARE SO SMALL I HAD TO TAKE THEM ON SUPERMACRO SETTING. Shocked and general vibration must have blurred them a bit.

These are next to a 1/35 scale American boot for scale comparison.

Do they have box end wrenches and a socket set?

Sherman,

They do not have tools other than socket wrenches and taps. Razz

Scale Hardware made these a long time ago when they were known as Gallery Transportation (GalTran). Several runs of the simulated nuts, bolts, etcetera were made to be sold under the Gauntlett by Armoury brand (M & Models). I have provided them with the dimensions of the slotted bolt as used by halftracks in the hopes they will release it so I can correct the Dragon kits the easy way. Very Happy

Regards,
