G'day guys... Maybe a silly question here but I just gotta ask!...How many of
you build your models where the wheels actually turn?, or do you glue them
on to the axles?.  I've tried building a few kits now with free spinning wheels,
but they never seem to sit nice, with the model looking like a "knock knee'd" kid
with pigeon toes!.  Any suggestions out there?. jeebus

It depends on the kit. If they've got metal axles then generally the wheels fit on them nice and tight and you can then drive the model round the table going vroom vroom to your hearts content.

Now c'mon Fred... I know you're taking the pi$$ out of my "bony fide" question here
mate. Metal axles almost makes the model into a toy?, so I don't use 'em.
As for going "vroom vroom" round the table, I did that once and my 4 year old
grandson looked up at me and said "you are a silly Poppy"!.

So now I do it when no-one's around! rolf
