Scale Aircraft Conversions 48233: JAS -39 Gripen Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Kitty Hawk 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the new Kitty Hawk 1/48 Gripen. The gear is typical of what you will find on modern jets. The beefy main gear has separate retraction struts; two sets from how it looks. The equally strong nose gear has a separate oleo scissor and its own retraction strut.  This looks like a very sturdy set and is very nicely cast. As usual, you may find some of the smaller bits a bit bent, but these are easily straightened.

You can order these direct at if your local hobby shop or favorite on-line retailer does not stock them.
