For the rubber pads of the chain I am still looking for a hexagonal screwdriver M3x6. I have a manufacturer who could make this custom size for model screws:
https://knupfer.info/shop/index.php/deu ... -kopf.html
They only offer M3x8. But maybe you can make M3x6.

Is there anybody, want this special model hex srews? You would need about 600. This would looking awesome scale.

Hi Florian

If I want any screws etc I use Kayfast here in the UK.
They take Paypal payments, are quick to post and will post to Europe.

Is this the fastener you want?

Kind Regards

Pete

Hello Pete,

not realy this one. Its special scale hex screw for modelling. key-wide 4. The normal hex M3 has key-wide 5.5.
Look at the screws at the KWK or front wheel on my SdKfz 251/9
