Hi everyone, now for those that have never done this before, this is a how to video on how to change the wheels on a resin model. This method will apply to most resin models, but some may require a little tweaking to this method, depending on the type of wheel used and the type of hub on the wheel.  You may have to add a stem or extend the hub to fit the axle back in place. But most resin models have the axle buried in hot glue, so at least this part of the video will show you how to remove it.  Here I am showing you how I changed the wheels on my Looksmart Ferrari 288 GTO Evoluzione

Cool stuff, mr rob. I am subscribed to your channel btw, and I have picked up quite a few tricks along the way. The rotary carving tool thingy on the dremel to remove parts ... omg, it made my life so much better. :occasion14:
