Default 2-56" x 1/8" Hex Head Bolts anyone have a source?

I flipped through a copy of RC Car Action & saw this Jeep build, anyone know where he got his 2-56" x 1/8" Hex Bolts for his beadlocks?
I don't have the copy & cant find a better pic than the cover of the zine.
I searched car action site & was surprised I could not find a pic or the article (it was in a 2013 issue I believe.)
Any pics or hardware info would help
Thanks

Those are beautiful!
Thank you!
Alas the ones in the pics of this rig are flat top hex bolts. They look just like these but tiny.



I wish I could find a pic

Anyone know who did this build?

Very close, maybe.
I am intending them to be dummies on a .125" Delrin ring.

Dostradamas,
The flat hex heads you are picturing have a (scale wise) large head of .125" which when brought up to scale would be crazy huge on a beadlock ring.

If you are just going to use an Axial plastic wheel, you can pick up those 2-56 scale bolts R2j pointed out (or our M2 stuff) to hold an Axial or LURC ring to the wheel. With the shorter M2x1 precut hardware, you can thread them into a ring tapped for M2 and you will get something like this:


The other benefit to a ring like the one above is that the hardware is countersunk, so when you are scrapping against the rocks there is some protection for the bolt heads!


As for the round/flange portion of the hex bolts, that is to help protect the finish on the rings. The actual hex heads would chew up the finish as you tighten them down and they end up looking just like washers once mounted.
