Default Thai 777 with front landing gear issues

Noticed today that the landing gear on our Thai 777 (Gemini) seems rather weird.

Do they offer replacements for it?

First of all, you have the gear in backwards, but yes, replacement gears are supposed to be available sometime soon according to Nikki at GJ.

The nose gear on your model is the uncompressed strut type. A ground configuration (compressed oleo strut) version is supposed to be available from GJ. JCW has already offered replacement gear for its models with this type of nose gear..

Marcus joins GJ? I didn't know that.
Why not first ask who you bought from?

I've asked Gemini for replacement gear for the Emirates 777-300 A6-EGP which has this same issue.....Gemini sent me the same gear. When I asked again they said that is all they have.

Gemini is supposed to be getting the correct compressed gear in stock, but they don't have them yet. Nikki is supposed to send me one when they have them, but that was several months ago and I'm not really optimistic at this point.

Spare parts don't come with models to shops. If they ask suppliers, they should get them for you.
