I remember that te Super Constellation led to some email exchanges with William LIU.
He has never once even acknowledged that on some of his models the rear limit of the walkway on the wings was missing.
Suggestions were also made to improve the nose landing gear with no success.
Anyway, I bought the model and brought the required modifications.
I disassembled the nose landing gear, modified the angle of the strut, changed the door fixed on the strut and added the little rectangular door under the nose.
On the wings, I finished the walkway with its rear limit.
I tried to put some weight in the nose because the model is a tail sitter.
Something that can easily be made to improve any Super Constellation.
True that some of these HM models were very good.
I did not want to highjack your thread Robert, but simply give some information to those who could be tempted to improve this model.
A lovely reserection JP Thank you for the posting the corrections.
