Started building a stagecoach by Victory Models. Lots of components in this kit.
Did not like the way some parts where attached. Decided to use nuts and bolts (Not pins as suggested) and required size M1.0. A search of the web found (amongst others) a company called Prime Miniatures. They had a threaded M1.0 bar plus open hex nuts, just what I was looking for. Ordered 17.00 on the 10/08 arrived today 14.00. Now thats what I call service.

I've used them many times in the past.
Certainly not cheap but excellent quality.

Cool find.There are a couple of US vendors for small nuts and bolts and threaded rod and they are all really pricey,but they do really enhance the look of a scale model.Nothing worse than out of scale hardware.
