Hi Michael,Sorry I have taken so long to you on your question...I do still intend to do a discussion of how I make my miniatures here in this group, but I had hoped more people would have come in and contributed by now...but Hey, I am happy to entertain a few interested people!  
For my tuning keys, I use a short length of the sharp end of a regular straight pin and a piece of posterboard cut to the shape of the key, glued and pushed onto the pin and a little glue on the exposed layers of the posterboard to fill it in.  Once painted with silver or gold car model paint they look like the real thing!  I have more recently been using a small looped wire and filling the middle with glue and then once dry, painting it with the model paint. I use the head of the pin cut shorter for the tuning key end where you attach the string...see the pics below.   I am always looking for new and better ways to make them look more real!   Edward

Hi Ed Happy New Year,I hope you had a great one.could you let me know what did you use to make the machine heads on the mini's.And for your question about the strat,It was a gift from my wife one christmas.I had told her about a mini strat I had seen that was bigger in size than the one she had got me.But I like the small one also,the larger one was made out of metal but looked right on.It was about 8 " in length,I had seen it in a guitar magazine I forget the name of that magazine now it was something like collectors guitars.
