Cutting Edge B-24 Cast Metal Landing Gear






Any 1/48 B-24 Liberator


Scott Van Aken

Those of you who have built Monogram's 1/48 B-24 kits have realized that not only are these rather on the large side, but they also tend to be a tough wobbly on the kit-supplied landing gear. In order to improve the strength of the model and to supply more detail that is given with the kit offerings, Cutting Edge has produced a set of replacement gear.

You get the three landing gear legs in beautifully cast metal as well as the nose gear mount and two retraction struts, also in cast metal. The molding is so good that very little, if any clean up is needed and they are ready to mount in place. A great idea and one that you really should check out.
