Any information on landing gear bungees?
« on: March 24, 2022, 05:26:05 AM »
Hi all

Basically I am wondering how bungee wraps are replicated. Just about done on my Roden DI, and the way the wheel axle goes across and thru the struts leaves a little to be desired. It is my thought that replicating a bungee (shown in most of the photos I have seen) would make the connection much stronger.

Any help truly appreciated.

In which scale?
If you see my build reports I have connected the metal landing gear with the metal axle with a rubber cord simulation by using stretched sprue (different colors, beige or dark grey depending on the original colors or museum pieces). This has to hold my models, as the rubber on the real thing and it works.

Use the search to see how it was done. To answer those questions we are doing build reports.

Good luck,
Frank
