Just getting started.

Building Revel Baja Bronco

Cannot see how to assemble/ attach rims and drums and axle pins with no glue as indicated in instructions

Nothing seems to snap together.

Surely a dumb question, but newby needs help.

Thanks

Tom

Do you have any pictures of the parts and instructions?

Thanks for replying.

I first thought the parts snapped together, but they do not. I have the tire on, and see how the pin slides into the axel. I can't figure how the drum attaches to the rim to hold the the wheel together without glue.

@tofi I'm not sure, but it looks like the pins are different than the ones in the instructions. In theory, it should press fit at either end. If it's not then it may be either wrong parts or badly made ones. I think the brake drums should press fit into the tire.

Thanks. I think you are correct about a mistake in directions or parts, should press for but did not. I glues and seems to work. Thanks again.

Now onto learning how to airbrush.

Take care.

Btw: we used to be in the area at Reston and Herndon quite often when our son played hockey.
