It depends on what you want to make with it. A 0.5mm punch from 0.25mm sheet will make a disc equivalent to 44mm by 22mm, which is big for most of the rivets and bolts found on vehicles. I suggest looking at the available sizes and working out what sizes they will scale up to in 1/87 before making your purchase, as these sets are not cheap. I produced a spreadsheet a while ago which had all the sizes of P&D I could find but it is on my other PC (currently being repaired/upgraded) so I can't retrieve it for a couple of weeks.
