In the 15mm scale what US manufacturers offer arty & limbers whose axle actually goes through the wheels.
I have a very difficult time glueing on wheels that simply have contact points with the axle.

I have artillery from many from Minifig 2nds on up and have never ran across wheels that didn't pin to frame.

I bought some arty and limbers a few months ago and just got around to assemblying them today. I can't remember the manufacturer.
The axles connect with the wheels, they just don't go through the wheels. I've been using a hand drill to bore out the wheels but I'm bending some of the wheels in doing so.

Most of my 15mm ACW are Old Glory 15s. It's been a long time since I put them together, but I'm sure that all the wheels had holes that slipped over studs or rods that were projections of the axles. They were very easy to put together. You can see an example in pic 7 of my Civil War Gallery at link

Thank you. I'll order a few from Old Glory.
Love your Civil War Gallery.

Glad you enjoyed the gallery. I think you'll like the Old Glory 15s limbers; connecting the wheels to the axles should be absolutely no problem. Richard
