For "splashes" that is what hits that graze off are called, or the fragments that melt on impack I just use my soldering gun at lower temp and a pointed tip on an angle. For actual penetration hits the trick I use is use a dull point to push the plastic in at low temp and then from the back side sand it till a hole develops this way you can decide how big or how small the shell was. I will bring my KT and show you if you want. It has examples of hits, dings, splashes etc...

On my Tiger I heated up a round bullet-type connector with a small torch, and pushed it into the plastic at different angles to get different types of shell impacts & bounces, turned out really well. 

You could pretty much use any piece of metal in whatever shape you want.
