Does anyone know where I can find these for use in other projects? I just need really really small nut/bolts. Same size as the MG ones.

try to disassemble a watch, or ask in a watch repair shop, there's bound to be some pretty small screws nuts and stuff

Those are too small and I can get such things easily. I want the same sizes that come with MG and PG kits.

I usually scavenge smaller scale electrical equipment such as old, scrapped, PLC-units. You can find a whole bunch of very small bolts and nuts inside stuff like that, not to mention other useful things for scratchbuilding and modifying.

Hit up a place that sells real radio control cars, not like radio shack. I picked up some to replace a lost screw on a PG Zaku I got offa Ebay. The only problem is that the bolts are usually allen heads, not slotted or philips.
