Thumbs up 1/33 Austrian dc-9 revisited.

Hello, this morning i have "landed" the dc-9 to clean the dust and to see how time affects to her, so to seize the opportunity of taking new photos of the model on wheels. Model is hanged one year and it is more than three years from i started her and is in excellent condition (apart from the dust). Humidity does not affects to her and the colour is pure white with no yellowing at all.
Just one thing i never imagined it could occur as you will see in the photos bellow.

In these photos you can see what i was talking about. Look the right nose landing gear. Rubber is corrupted. No problem with the other one or with any other gear. I don´t know why because these gears are for RC planes as i usually use them and i think they came in the same bag. Only sanding is applied and no other modification. I remember something like this happened to some of my 1/200 jetwings and D H models metal planes with rubber tyres some time ago.

this reminds those mad for rubber wheels that plastic may last more than rubber, and metal will probably last more than anything else...sorry for the corrupted rubber tyres!
