      Hi All!

      I have a Minicraft 757 that I have spend the last 12 (yes 12!!) years fixing EVERY fault. Completely scratch built gear/gear wells... fixed the pylons... shortened the fuselage... fixed the tail... Fixed the windscreen. On and On (and on and on and on).

      I was beginning to prep the gear for painting I decided that there was no way I was going to put the kit wheels (which are completely devoid of detail) on my finished model. Does anyone have any ideas about how I can add some detail or--better yet--purchase an aftermarket set of 757 wheels??

      Thanks!

      Chris

      Hi Chris,

      I can add a set of resin wheels from my kit, when shipping the 747 metal gear.

      Chris, I have some extra AA 757 parts (RR engines, winglets), if you want them, they're yours!
