I saw this render in a Reddit post earlier today (image down below), showcasing a nice looking brickheadz moc, and the guy who posted it had designed it so that instructions for the model could be sold on a website he was part of. However, I cannot work out how the brown straps of the medal have been built, and I'm pretty sure they would be impossible in a real model. The designer told me that he used 2x2 brackets, which are 0.5 plates thick, but with a tile on top, this would be too large to fit in the gap. He tells me that he has built the model in real life, but won't share the technique because the only way to obtain instructions is to buy them, which I am not willing to do for a model that I'm not going to build anyway. So, is this possible? I can see no way in which a technique like this would work with Lego bricks.

It looks very odd anyway, that black brick with the medal on is 2 and a half plates high! There's no such piece.
Oh and those brown brackets are too long.
Basically it's bull.
It is not a bracket, but a 2x2 hinge top (6134). The tiles go onto the side of the hinge away from the hinge, and the hinge part presumably is buried so you cannot see it (it cannot be a 1x2 hinge top due to the headlight brick in the way).
In fact, it is reasonably tight, you might not even need a hinge brick part to attach to anything. Friction holds it reasonably well.
