Default Phoenix Turkish Airlines A340-300 missing gear?

1:400 Phoenix Models Turkish Airlines Airbus Industries A340-300 TC-JDM

While looking at the above pictures, it appears this Turkish A340 seems to be missing the middle "boogie" gear.

Does anybody have this model that can confirm this or is this just an illusion?

Thanks in advance.

Wouldn't surprise me knowing their dismal QC of late.

The middle main on the A340 can be retracted while the a/c is on the ground if it is light enough.

As for this model though, yes it looks like it is missing to my eye too. Probably an issue with that model. I suspect it is a bug, not a feature.
