I recently moved, and the moving company managed to pack a United 747-400 model of mine in a way that would guarantee it to break. Luckily, most of the breaks were on glue joints, so they can be fixed easily. However, two wheels went missing.
I just found one of these on eBay, and I'm prepared to buy the whole model just to get the two wheels (this particular model has a huge amount of sentimental value), but I thought that it might be possible to just find two wheels somewhere and spare a new model from being ruined in the search of two tiny parts.
If you can offer any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it. The model is a Revell 747-400, 1:144 in the grey/blue United colors.
