SET: Scale Aircraft Conversions 32008: A4 Skyhawk landing gear
PRICE: $21.95 MSRP
FOR: Hasegawa 1/32 Kits
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This set is designed for the Hasegawa 1/32 A-4E/F or TA-4J. It is a replacement for the kit landing gear and includes both the main gear and the rather complete nose gear assembly. In fact, much of the additional detail is for the nose gear. As you can see, there are six pieces to this part. Personally, I would have liked to have seen a small diagram included in this set to show where these bits go. I'm sure that one of the many A-4 reference books will be helpful when it comes to this one, but a diagram would have been nice.

The gear is quite sturdy and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them in place as they are direct replacements for the kit parts.

You can order these direct at if your local hobby shop does not stock them.
