Hello,
I just bought this plane.
The wheels are missing and even if I find wheels (red or black), how do I attach them? The axle attachments seem to be "U" shaped. Special axles?
Moreover everything was glued, impossible to disassemble it if necessary.
At the moment I can do without it.

Any advice for the wheels? Thanks

More pictures;

My missing wheels, di you see the "U" shape for axle ?
In my opinion I need an axle of a precise diameter that will enter under pressure in the "U". Snap-in the "U" ?

Yes,the wheels have axles molded in the wheel, and they press-fit into those "U" shaped slots.Cox 020 red Pitts Special ; wheels missing ; half-solved Screen94

I found myself some wheels.
From miniature cars bought $0.25 in a salvage store.
The axle was made from a nail with a diameter corresponding to the notch in the wheel cover.

If one day, I find the original wheels I will use them.

No it looks too fragile and was poorly repaired by a previous owner who glued everything together.
I have no intention of having my collection flying in the near future. I just started it 2 years ago.
Maybe an "old" Pt- 19 as I also have a new one .

I used to fly only control line a long time ago, I don't fly anymore
