Unhappy Thunder Tiger Victoria

There are two simple answers if buying the entire sprue is not an option -
1 Since its just a visual adornment and not load bearing, why not just make one? A bit of styrene sheet cut to size.
2 Alternatively, just forget the wheels. Operationally, they are just a source of line snagging.
My second hand one came without them, and I have never missed them, a fellow club member has recently built one, fitted the wheels and has resorted to cutting bits off them to get a good run for his lines.

Hard to imagne that part being $24.00 . Very nice of you Huzway! I agree with the helms being cute, but they do provide a snag point - worth considering leaving them off.

Hi boomer. I like the pictures of the wheels covered with string between them looking like Halloween decorations to keep the sheets from snagging.
still no address from him for me to mail to.
