While the roadwheel/bogies are highlighted, I'll throw in the mix the lack of different tread pattern resin tires available to the modeler when it comes to trucks and armored cars (the AML for example). The resin tires can be done in similar fashion as the road wheels of course. While both deserve attention, I'm impressed with the video dealing with the gizmology used! Well done!

That was a helpful demo by covering the different mounting requirements for the different types of wheel hubs

Very helpful and amusing video! I recall a Shep Paine book in which he wrote that he gravitated away from armor because 'there are only so many road wheels one can clean up per lifetime'!

I look forward to your next video.
