Ray Seppala Hey Dutch, I noticed from the captions on your pictures you are missing some nose landing gear parts. I have a started 767 that is being built wheels up (Remember my DHL freighter? its in the paint shop again). Let me know the parts you need and I can put them in the mail.

Dutch Ray, I will post photos of the nose well tonight. The u/c leg was glued into the forward fuselage, just the lowest bit of strut with the wheels is missing. I do not want to deconstruct the wheel well to replace the whole strut. I think that I will just super glue the oleo with wheels onto the existing strut, perhaps reinforcing by drilling into the strut and using fine wire or a pin as reinforcement. And I will send you something useful in return. R/ Dutch

Dutch Ray, I am reconsidering my options and may go ahead and completely remove the strut in the forward wheel well and replace with a new strut and wheels. What would be the cost of shipping your set from OZ?
Dutch Ray, after careful examination I have decided to remove the nose gear strut and request your spare nose strut with wheels. Please let me know a shipping estimate from Oz before you do anything else. If I can get a SAC metal u/c for less locally, then I will opt for the cheaper option. K/r, Dutch

Dutch Ray, please disregard my last request. I will use what I have in the kit. Thanks for the offer.

Dutch Ray, good news! I found the missing lower nose gear strut. I will attempt to glue and reinforce it with sturdy thin wire. I will source wheels from the spares box. Do not send your parts. I will let you know if I am successful. R/ Dutch
