Today I got AZ I-DUPB: nice mould, even if it has some issues: one is the landing gears.

Has anyone some serious spare gears? or should I write to Dragon?

Hi Lorenzo.

left or right main gear? cause I'm sure I have one in my goody jar.
Let me know and I'll see what I can do for you.
OK, I have a spare right main gear for the early M11s or are you after a full replacement set of gears?
If yes, you will have to modify the recess where the gear places into as they changed quite considerably with the new version. A cavity would need to be scrapped away into the wing section to allow it to be seated properly.
Don't forget to make the gear covers from thin plastic card painted light grey to make it look accurate also.
Will wait to hear from you.

I need a new MD-11 mould! LOL

A full gear set is what I look for: I have tried a DW DC-10 gears and they fit, even if they require some fixing.

May I write to people at Dragon?
