My PL Models TWA L-749 Constellation fell off its shelf - still in its box - and I was horrified to find that all the undercarriage legs got broken! The break was mid-leg, so impossible to fix! Anyway I managed to get a replacement model from a dealer in Switzerland and it arrived today....with broken nose gear again!! :cry:
Does anyone have a Connie that can donate its nose undercarriage leg perhaps?

Cyanoacrylate will glue even a mid-leg broken connies gear. Not the easiest but doable if you try.

I have a spare Connie in storage Adrian, let me take look to see what's what.

Specially if you also glue a tiny piece of metal wire on the back ;)

Alternatively you could ask your spy in China :^^: :lol:

Adrian, I can send you a bottle of "War Glue" to try to repair the undercarriages if you want? no charge.

Thanks Jan, I've actually fixed it as you suggested!

Greatly appreciate your kind offer but Super Glue has done the trick...on Connie #1 at least, thanks.

Philippe, I asked 'my spy in China' for a BB400/AC B747 nose gear leg ages ago, but it didn't appear , so he is rather unreliable!

Ron, my PL Models TWA Connies are plagued with bad luck as I have a second one with smashed
undercarriage (and one piece lost) so if you or anyone has a complete Connie gear to spare, or that can be removed from a redundant model, it would still be appreciated.
