Scale Aircraft Conversions 48258: F-14 Tomcat Landing Gear
PRICE: $18.95 MSRP
FOR: Hobby Boss 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is a pretty hefty set for any of the various Academy 1/48 F-14 Tomcats. The set includes the two main gear legs, retraction struts, oleo scissors, and other smaller struts. The latter are encased in a metal sprue to keep them from being bent. The nose gear strut includes the small gear door. It is inevitable that some of the thinner bits will be deformed during shipping, but they are easily straightened.  Like most SAC gear, this set is nicely molded and is a direct replacement for the kit parts.

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