    I need to make some. Like 100-1000 need to be created. :D  I have seen some Gundam models with bunches on them but have no clue how to make them all the same consistent size without a lot of :banghead: 

    Any ideas?

    I learned how to at this website.

    There is an tutorial in the stores section under the balls,beads,and screws section where he sells ball bearing,and tube beads to mimic rivets.

    I got two different sizes from my local fabric/hobby store(Johann Fabrics). What I have are called crimping bead. Tiny little straight tube beads that you put on necklaces and bracelets. I have them in both gold and silver for both the the sizes. I just wish I could find those little tiny ball bearings he uses.

    He also sells mesh cables and display bases, and sometimes resin weapons that may or may not fit TF's not really sure. But the are centered around 1/100 sized gundam so I wouldn't see why they wouldn't.

    You are a lifesaver. They even sell the right sized drill bit to do it with, freakin sweet. :thumbs2: 

    Though I am wondering is 2.0 mm the right size for a 14" transformer? Next question would be if a company actually makes larger than 2mm.
