What about a nail set? It's like a center punch only it has a concave circular
tip. If you use it as a punch, through sheet styrene, you'll get circular domed
pieces of styrene just like rivet heads. Stanley makes one with a 1/32"
diameter, which comes out at a 1" rivet head in 32nd scale, and a wee bit
smaller in 35th. I can'r remember what scale the tank is to be in.
