Scale Aircraft Conversions 48240: F-80 Shooting Star Landing Gear
PRICE: $13.95 MSRP
FOR: Hobby Boss 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal


This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Recent Hobby Boss 1/48 F-80A kit and will undoubtedly fit any other versions that Hobby Boss decides to release. It is a nicely cast set that includes the two main landing gear with retraction struts and a nose gear with the retraction strut molded in place. The parts are a direct replacement for the kit bits and are pretty well ready to go after removing any mold seams or casting flash (that little pip on the MLG brake line). Well worth the investment.

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