      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!

    HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

    The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

    You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

    This Group Build will feature WWI Aircraft Kits.

    1. This Group Build will run until 31 December, 2011.

    2. Build as many kits as you like.

    3. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

    4. Any markings are acceptable.

    5. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
