Scale Aircraft Conversions 48292: F3D Skyknight Landing Gear
PRICE: $19.95 MSRP
FOR: Czech Model 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal, upgrade

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the recently reissued Czech Model F3D Skyknight. The set is an improvement over the kit bits in that the nose gear has added detail, and the retraction struts and braces have been altered to fit into the wheel bays. As you can see, there are a lot of bits in this set and it includes a new nose gear well. I test fit the nose gear into the well and found that either the mounting post needs to be reduced a bit or the receptacle deepened. I built this kit many years back and found that either the nose gear was too short or the main gear too long to keep this in mind when using this set and make adjustments as necessary. The set is quite sturdy and is designed to replace the kit bits.

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