Hey Larry, if it's not too much trouble, can you provide some visuals for this? I can't seem to picture it out myself, and I really like to try your tip out on mine, thanks much!

Hi Hans,

 

It's not my tip, but Joel's.

Maybe he can help you.

Hans,

  When you install the landing gear, you need to apply a little pressure while the glue dries so that the gear has a slight positive camber, that's where the top of the wheel is angled towards the fuselage. when the model rests on the gear, the weight will spread the gear slightly so that the gear/wheel is now close to zero camber, thus being as vertical as you can get it. this will prevent the gear from eventually squatting out.   Metal gear struts epoxied in would certainly be a major plus, but like I said Ernie G is just about retired at this point, so I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for him to make them.  I know because on LSP they've been asking him to do them, and Ernie still hasn't said yes.

Our next project will be announced soon enough. I can't say what it is yet, but I will say it's not a twin engine blue aircraft. :hmmm:

Focus and repeat after me: "Bronco, Bronco, Bronco"

 

Bronco, Bronco, Bronco...

Sir Zactoman, any updates on the progress and release?

Still no update on release date or price.

Tooling is still being worked on. Decals artwork is finished and decals will be printed soon. Instruction sheets are in-progress. Package design is in-progress.

 

Here are profiles of the included schemes that I did for the packaging. They will also be included along with the decal placement charts in the box.

A couple of nice schemes there Zactoman. Thanks.

 

I already have my Testors kit put aside to donate to a needy family. I had the Paragon update set too but I think I got rid of that years ago.

Tried to go to the FB page.

 

Oh.  Bummer.

 Facebook page should be fixed now.

 

I added the following new message:

 

I have decided to end my relationship with HazMAT Models.

Sorry, but I do not know the status of the Bronco kit.
I have no answers so will not be replying to questions about the company or the kit.

I will post a link to their new Facebook page and/or website if and when they are created.

 

:cheers:

Read in the HazMAT facebook replies (link) a comment from Martin "AMK" Wilson:

If the moulds exist, there's hope. As if the (in)famous Terry want to earn some money, he has now to edit the kit.

Wait and see.

Yes very sad. Also got to the point where decals were also finalized for print. The 3d printed version "kit" I got looked fantastic which makes it more of a shame as it was much better looking in details and parts compared to even the larger 1/32 current kit.
