Scale Aircraft Conversions 14406: B.747-800  Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Zvezda 1/144 Kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the new Zvezda 1/144 Boeing 747-800 airliner kit. As you may know, 747s are rather large aircraft and have several sets of main landing gear. All of this has been replicated with this set. There are four main gear lets with retraction struts and what appear to be oleo scissors. The nose gear strut assembly seems to be two pieces. Also included in the set are what seem to be main gear wheel brake/hub assemblies. I wish I could be more exact, but I do not have the kit for comparison. These are direct replacements for the kit parts.

The gear is quite sturdy, and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them. As you can see from the image, the casting is first rate.

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