Scale Aircraft Conversions 32047: F-5E Tiger II landing gear
PRICE: $19.95 MSRP
FOR: Hasegawa 1/32 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

Starting with the next batch of nicely done metal landing gear from Scale Aircraft Conversions, this set is for the Hasegawa 1/32 F-5E Tiger II. This kit has also been boxed by Revell AG. The set includes both main gear, retraction struts, door links, nose gear strut with additional fork section and smaller retraction strut (or is it a door brace?).

The gear is quite well cast 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. It is not uncommon for cast metal bits to be a bit bent but some careful straightening out will bring them into line once again.

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