    This is how i make ( and made on Dipper ) the landinggears for Blade Ranger. First i roll a piece of paper around the toothpick, for the vertical and then i roll an extra piece of paper for the horizontal. The horizontal piece is scratch by me because it is missing. Then i cut a slit in the horizontal piece, put the toothpick thru it and glue it together. When it is dry i cut the excess and glue the wheels on. Tadah a complete frontwheel 20160629_191906810_iOS~2.jpg 20160629_191925953_iOS~2.jpg
