Youme Edit:

I'm done with this, the model is uploaded and you can download it up there ^. it's 4x4x9 units in hammer and has a 128x128 texture, if you think that's too much you can drop it to 64 with no problems.

Original post:

I kinda feel ashamed that I have to request a model.

So anyway, sadness aside, my WIP map will include quite a lot of bolts (or screws, however you wish to call it) and making them with brushes is really uncomfortable, especially for performance and time issues. Included is a picture of what the heads should look like. Thanks in advance.

which is it, a bolt or a screw? theres a fair bit of difference.

A bolt is screwed in with a spanner or wrench and looks like this http://www.germes-online.com/direct/dbimage/50337445/Bolt__Screw.jpg
whilst a screw is screwed in with a screwdriver and looks like this http://www.e-potpourri.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/11/oversized-screw-table.jpg

Its also a good idea to suggest dimentions.

Fine, a bolt, but with a random half-sphere thrown in to make it look cooler.

Sorry for no dimensions; it's pretty small, the outside is 4HU in diameter, and the center half-sphere is 3HU. The thickness of the base is 1HU, and the thickness of the half-sphere is 1HU as well. If other units are used for modeling, I'll need some sort of reference, because I know of none :/
