I'm new to kit bashing and customizing and wondered if anyone has experience with using rivets on 1:6 figures or any scale figure. If so are there miniature rivets that can be used on a 1:6 scale figures costume? I'm working on a lord of the rings thing and I'd like to fasten some segmented armor pieces to a breast place with leather straps and rivets.

Thanks for any input.

I'm trying to build a Uruk Hai orc, one of the few seen in FoTR that kill Boromir.
DOn't know how I'm going to craft a lurtz head and face since I've never tried but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. The figure I'm using is a 12 inch Jakks pacific WWE maximum aggression figure. It has the musculature I'm looking for.

Using cans sounds cool, you can even give them a battered effect by dinging it a little.

nevermind, found some minature rivets at the craft store. I've got the breast plate done. The main chest piece is cut from a campbells soup select soup can, and the lamina that protect the belly are cut out of a dr. pepper can.
