Default Pan head or flat screws/bolts

I'm working on an older scale fuselage with two half痴 and I知 looking for a small flat or pan head bolt that I can install a blind nut behind it.

I知 trying to get it as small as possible as I知 going to be using a few to hold the front half on securely. Does any one have experience doing it this way?

A pic would make it easier to visualize what you are trying to do. Many newer fuselages hold the front section on with small magnets.

These guys are good for small bolts, screws etc.

As you can see from the pictures the Fibreglass overlaps so magnets will not work.

It depends on whether you want a "permanent" fixture or not. If you want to be able to remove the front to fit lipos etc, it would be fairly easy to adapt it to magnets with some lateral thinking.

A few small cutouts of the "inner" lip, glue magnets to the front section with the "outer" part, and make up a small bracket glued to the rear section to match the front magnets. There is always a way.

If, however, you just want to screw it on, then small screws are readily available.

It's funny you mention that it is an older fuselage because Century lists that as their unpainted 700 size MD500. How long have you had it and where did you get it from?

I've had it for years it is 700 or 90 size fuselage If you look at their posted picture you will see they have a new designed one that the nose cone and back fuselage has a 90 degree flange an the landing gear has slot type insertion

The picture of the painted helicopter is using the older landing gear that I have.
