Scale Aircraft Conversions 72111: F-8 Crusader Landing Gear
PRICE: $12.95 MSRP
FOR: Academy 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for what is considered to be the best Crusader in 1/72 scale, the Academy kit. This set includes both the main landing gear legs and their retraction struts. For the nose there is a nose strut with a separate wheel fork section and a piece that fits in the upper part of the nose strut. The set is nicely cast 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.
