I know two articles that may be of interest for you:
Reciprocal altruism and group formation
Zeggelink, de Vos and Elsas
you may find other interesting papers by searching Zeggelink on Google
Some dynamics of social balance processes: bringing Heider back into balance theory
by N.P. Hummon and P.Doreian
vol.25 pp.17-49. 2002
available on ScienceDirect
In "Growing artificial societies" Epstein and Axtell proposes also a model of link formation
at last there is also "Arrieros ALife" by K.Auer and T.Norris http://jasss.soc.surrey.ac.uk/4/1/6.html
but their model is much more complicated ...
By the way I'll be very interested if you could send me the results of you request ...
