Just a guess here but most models have rams, buckets, arms etc. held in place by brass rivets so you would need to carefully drill the one side of the rivet off and the pin should drive out okay, you'll need to retain the rivet for its size, measure the diameter with a vernier calliper. When fitting the bucket back on I would purchase a length of silver steel from an engineers merchant and cut new securing pins to length, these will simply slide into place but unlike the rivets will not be secured, this should not hurt as its a model and not a toy.
Other members may have better ideas than this but that's how I would tackle the problem.
