Two mouldings per pack = 8 Hooks & eyes, 4 larger hooks & 2 hooks for 3-link couplings. Used on prototype coaches and some wagons that had couplings thought not to be 100% reliable! There were usually two at each end of the vehicle.

Two brake wheels, 3 round and 4 curly valvewheels, plus 2 sizes of pressure gauges. Smokebox door handle & loco regulator
Make your scratch-built models look as though they're just held together by glue.
Two mouldings per pack = total rivet "heads" approx. 230, 1·5mm diameter. They are not suitable for hot surfaces. Click "More…" for suggested way to apply rivets.
To avoid losing the rivet heads, it is best to cut them from the sprue inside a clear polythene bag. Hold the knife at an angle, and cut down the "slope" of the rivet towards the base. This will reduce the likelihood of leaving part of the feed attached. To apply, draw a pencil line along the rivet line's position and mark even-spaced (or as on the prototype) lines across the rivet line. Regularly spaced and straight lines of rivets will look far better than uneven and wandering ones, even if there aren't the same number as the prototype. Pick the rivet head up with the point of a sharp knife or scalpel and position. Apply a small drop of solvent, which should flow under the rivet head and hold it in place. If using a thicker type, such as "Liquid poly" or Revell "Contacta Pro", it should be possible to put the drop of solvent on the rivet's position, and then press the rivet head down on top of it.
One pair – with metal hooks. Requires chain – this can be made by wrapping wire round an oval former and cutting with a fine saw to make links.
Set of four – based on Talyllyn Railway coach type. They can be glued to the bufferbeam,
or the dummy bolt heads can be cut off to reveal holes for pins (for wood bufferbeams).
