Im looking for some 1/72 bolts, I know there are a couple of PE companies making 1/35 bolt but I think does will be too big and dimensions are not giving, sadly I have never seen them myself, so are there smaller bolts too?
I have tried heating some hex strip and stretching that but that does not gives a good result, the hex shape got lost do to the heating.
any tips on making them or where to get small bolts 0,5mm or smaller
thanks

Apart from nice rivets 0,5mm I am using the have also small bolts a.o. parts.
To get the size you have to fight with the british measuring systems.
