Default Help needed my jc wings 737's front tire fell off

Hi there I have a JC wings Virgin Australia 1/200 737. I was moving my model this morning and the front tyres just snapped off. The wheel assembly itself is all good but the tires are gonners. Is there a way to get some new tires and put them on or replace the front wheel assembly with a whole new tire setup. If it is possible where would I get it from and how do u do it. I would be forever greatful for any advice as I really want to save this model.

You could try to use a B 737 landing gear set made by Hogan, it's cheap, of course it's plastic, but it can work.

Unless you manage to get a replacement part from your retailer, in that case you will receive the full nose landing gear.

Don't worry, this is the easiest part to replace/fix. You can try gemini/jc wings and see if they can send you replacement gear (GeminiJets Online - Contact Us). If they don't for this model, you can just get replacement gear for another model and use that.

Do you have pictures of the gear? I feel like most wheel and tire issues can be repaired quite easily, so you might be able to just avoid this whole replacement hassle.

I'm afraid the only solution for you is to get a nose gear replacement from your retailer or another source, or an Hogan set.

Yes, the nose gear is glued in, but you should be able to remove it, provided you use an appropriate tool.
BE CAREFUL WITH THE PAINT !

I already did something similar to correct the nose down attitude on one of my models, I use a dentist tool.

Again, be careful with the paint.
