      Was lucky enough to score a Revell DC-8-61 kit...to discover that the two nose gear wheels and one main gear wheel are missing. Please let me know by PM if you can offer any or all three of these. Willing to pay or trade if you can help.

      P.S. It appears that wheels of the Revell DC-8-10 and DC-8-61 kits are interchangeable, having been cast fro the same mold. Also, a main gear wheel without axle is preferred although I can easily make one with axle work.

      Thank you.

      My first thought was, "Have you checked in the wheel wells?" But I wouldn't say that...

      Perhaps you could purchase some suitable wheel sets from Authentic Airliners? Kurt might be able to offer you a set of resin wheels/tires. The worst answer you could get is no.....Just an idea.
