After watching one or two reviews of the model all comments were positive other than the flimsy undercarriage. As my build will have a 61 four stroke up front I thought I would try to improve the kit offering .

The main part of the build is the sprung leg which is made by utilising two brass tubes which slides into one another a heavy and light spring are inserted into the larger tube with the heavy spring in the upper part of the tube with brass spaces separating each. Mounting lugs are machined from brass for the tube ends.

I have kept the kit supplied forward strut but I plan to add a set of rear struts as per the prototype and had added support lugs with this in mind.
