Would track pins do as bolt heads?  Perhaps solder/epoxy one into a 'handle', or a cut-off one in a pin-vice, use that to make holes in the same way as you'd use a bradawl, then push a snipped-off pin [head end] into the hole?  You could even flatten the very tiniest amount of tip to make a micro-flat drill to 'twiddle in' to avoid splitting.  It could avoid getting glue on the surfaces too.  Below is a track pin pretending to be a bolt.........


Nice job so far, too.

Nice build, Alan. It will give plenty of individuality to your layout.

Hi Alan, have a look at Grandt Line products they do plastic H0 scale nut-bolt-washer castings and can be sourced in the UK


Or try,http://www.eileensemporium.com/ who sell cosmetic nuts and bolts.

Cheers
Mike

Thanks for the comments Guys and also Mike for the link, as for adding details such as bolts etc, I will wait to see what sort of time I have before the show, for those sort of details, but the layout is coming on at a great speed of knots at the moment, so I guess I will be adding things like that for the show.

Next on the workbench as of this week another wooden building :hmm
