Delay in Shuttle Wheel Set

Sorry to announce, but we will have to wait a little longer for the Space Shuttle Wheel set. I tried assembling the parts and found the main gear brake hub was too large to fit in the wheels by .003 inches. This doesn't sound like a lot, but it takes a little effort to get the parts sanded to allow a fit. I also found some inaccuracies with the detail and this just isn't the quality product I want to release.


I am fit checking the parts against both the Revell and Monogram kits and plan to provide instructions for both. This will require the modeler to drill the nose wheels to the correct size, but keeps the parts universal. The main gear axes on both kits are similar enough in size that custom drilling shouldn't be needed.


Sorry for the delay, but I want to be sure I provide products which meet a high standard. It will probably be another month before I can release the kit. Thanks for your patience!
