Has anyone had any success making wagon wheels? I don't really want to be buying kits just for the wheels, too expensive! Would appreciate any advice on this.

I have not tried it yet but I have been thinking of making some that are the solid rounds with out spokes. They would look like round shields.

That seems the only viable option for DIY wheels; giant round shields made from strips of balsa, cut in a round shape. I wouldn't know how to make a realistic looking spoked wheel from scratch. I think your best chance is to go online and find sites where you can order them apiece.

Sometimes people use wheels from LEGO sets as well as GW bits.
U can find it on ebay, first example: http://www.ebay.com/itm/30-LEGO-wagon-wheel-pieces-pcs-bulk-lot-D64-/221201590742?pt=Building_Toys_US&hash=item3380a469d6 Wink

I tried to do spoked wheels, but in the end gave up (my issue was getting the rim thin enough without the balsa breaking, perhaps if it was plasticard instead?).

I did solid wheels in my very quick fantasy carts tutorial on my site:

I made some solid ones as well, for a bunch of carts. thick sheets of balsa with a ring of plasticard around them as the Iron hoop, and also to protect the wheels from chipping win play.
