This from Chuck Balmer

Since Coles Power Models went out of business, I have had a hard time finding a good source for small copper rivets at a reasonable price. McMaster-Carr has alot of rivets but they don't carry the small copper ones. I found a company out in California called Hanson Rivets that has all types of  copper, aluminum, and steel rivets with a variety of head types. You can order the rivets by the pound or fraction there of. The prices are quite reasonable and they will accept VISA phone orders. For anyone interested, they can go online at Hansonrivet.com. Their phone number is 1-800-777-4838.
