    I like the leaf springs detail. These details really set your models up, and make then very nice. We're always happy to have you whenever you get the time. No need to ever apologize. ;)

    For parts this size i thought it'd better use a solid piece of card to get more rigidity. This 2mm card isn't so much rigid so i washed it with cianoacrilato glue to have a very rigid piece

    It is difficult to create free wheels and keep the appearance close to the original parts. I tried and the result is not so bad

    It's difficult to explain this in the tutorial, but these wheels can be attached blocked
