Undercarriage is plenty solid enough. No need to worry. It holds the model with zero issues.

Did you cut the undercarriage locks off?

Same question I had after hearing of the ground locks for the gear.  It seems like a pretty straight forward fix to just cut them off and dress the remaining parts to fix the "issue".  My interest lies primarily with the upcoming Dambuster release.  I may pick this up instead of the WNW as I'm not too sure how I feel about stressed skin effect on a plastic model...The jury is still out pending the WNW release though.  Oh, price is also a major concern regarding the pending WNW issue.

No. I knew about the 'issue' beforehand but opted to keep them in situ. Maybe the wartime birds had similar struts for maintenance etc?It does make sense. I also thought the extra rigidity they may offer was worth the trade off in keeping them.
