Easiest thing to do would be to get some of the 'Sticky Tack' putty and put a small bit under the nose gear. That way you're not altering the model in any way.

I second this. Has worked for a couple of "naughty" A319 models I have that wanted to take off apparently

But supposing you want the flexibiity of moving models around? I have a Phoenix Qatar A380. Sometimes i want to display it as a key part of the QR fleet, sometimes as part of a group of other A380s...

The regular sticky tack won't prevent you from moving it around either.

Just pick it up and move it, adjust the tack if necessary. It's not glue you can pull the model off of it easily. You only need the tiniest of pieces to stop nose drift, smaller than you can pinch.

If I’m not mistaken aren’t Phoenix gears the less likely one to break off. I accidentally took an aeroclassic a330 for a Phoenix one and tried adjusting the gear and that was it. Phoenix gears are designed in a way where the slightest bend won’t damage anything as opposed to NG/AC/JC/GJ gear. But again I am a daredevil with my models so whatever works.

Also doesn’t nose up indicate an unbalanced model?
