      Had the same thing happen to me with my kit.

      Leave the gear struts attached to their sprues which keeps everything in proper relationship to each other, then using Tamiya Extra Thin Cement, re-attach the broken part after tons on dry-fitting to verify the original mating surfaces. I used magnification for that step, and got everything back together no problems.

      The Roden plastic reacts very well with the Tamiya cement, and you can't even tell where the break is now. After everything sets overnight, trim the part of the sprue and press on bravely!
