    Anyone bought one of the Wheelies unassembled? I am missing all of my connector and ball and socket joints. I thought it came with all of that. Aside from that, this kit rocks. It's well made, doesn't feel cheap, and all the pin holes align perfectly. Just mad about my missing connectors. :banghead:

    Can't you do anything about the missing parts, dude? For example, contacting the seller?

    Hope you have heard back from the seller by now, but just in case you haven't.

    The parts you mentioned are not included in the kit. You need to have them ready yourself.
    (I looked at the instruction sheet on their website. The recommend Yellow Submarine brand ball joints.)

    Good luck :)

    Oh for Pete's sake. Thanks for the info, my Japanese is horrible. I haven't heard back from the seller, so your help is very appreciated.

    Even if I am cussing up a storm right now. :redface2: 

    hmm... Yellow submarine...

    I've just taken a better look and the instruction says you can only use Yellow Submarine "kansetsuwaza" ball joints :(  I don't know much about those custom parts, though. Are they easily available?

    Anyway, things you'll need;

    Poly-caps (3mm diameter) x 7
    Poly-caps (2mm diameter) x 2
    Recommended - Kotobukiya Modelling Support Goods series "Poly unit rolling joint" set x2

    Ball joints medium size x 2
    Specified - Yellow Submarine "Ball joint Kansetsuwaza"

    Poly stick (2mm diameter) 11mm x 2
    Brass wire (1mm diameter ) 150mm

    As I said I don't know much about this sort of things, so my terms are probably very wrong.

    I was able to get the parts from Hobby Link Japan. They have a lot of neat kitbashing stuff. Hopefully they wont take too long to get here. Thanks again for the help!

    Isn't this kit pretty damn expensive? I'd be mad as hell if I bought it and THEN found out I had to buy extra stuff to actually build it.

    I got it for $125. Pricey, but not super pricey ($400+) like they were a few months ago. While I'm bummed about the 'missing parts' (others, beware!) apparently they are real easy to come by in Japan. Most places that sell model kits sell these parts. The parts aren't that expensive, I was able to order everything I need plus extra for about $7.

    So my wheelie is cleaned, painted, and prepped just waiting for the joints!
