Tip: When referring to left or right-hand side in regards to a Flames Of War miniature, the orientation is determined as if looking at the vehicle from the rear.
Glue the right-hand single front wheel in place. Repeat for the left-hand side. Place the vehicle wheels-down to check that all wheels are straight, before the glue dries.
