Default Hangar 9 Focker D VII part needed

I am getting back into the hobby after a hiatus and am repairing my D VII. One of the wheels got beat up pretty bad, I am wondering if anyone has one they would be willing to part with or know of where I can get one? It looked like an easy repair (fuselage/wing) and then the wheel spontaneously fell off revealing the damage. That was when I thought, Oh yeah, now I remember this hobby! I have tried for a while but don't trust the fix methods I have come up. Thanks all.

Contact me, I think I have a set of wheels in my spares box.
I customized a H9 D7 before and used Williams Brothers wheels instead of the stock ones. Flew for years and very durable. If you broke the stock ones then I'd suggest just getting the Williams wheels instead and save the trouble.

Let me know if you do have the stock ones, I will probably go with those for now. Thanks so much for your help. Jim

This was my H9 D7
OS 95V
Spektrum Rx
Hitec Servos
Stripped to the frame and recovered with three color lozenge fabric covering, painted and weathered
Aces of Iron pilot
Williams Bros wheels
Williams Bros machine guns with real machined brass bullets and steel belt link ammo... no, not kidding, found this in a hobby shop in Hong Kong for Gundam models, $4 a short belt run, and the kicker... they make spent rounds too! So the other side of the guns have a few links of spent rounds

THAT is nothing short of spectacular! Mine is strictly stock and while I really enjoy it, it is nothing like that. Where did you get the lozenge covering? I do like the aces of Iron pilots and had thought about getting one. Mine has a Saito 82, I wouldn't mind a bit more power but it gets the job done. Seeing your plane makes me want to re-do mine! Really beautiful...
I sent you a private message but am not sure if it went through, I will try again if it did not.

Thanks, yes I got your PM, I'll check for the wheels, I remember seeing them this summer while cleaning out stuff.
I traded this plane and regret it, but I wasn't flying it very much so I let it go.
Arizona Model supplies the covering in various styles.
