Scale Aircraft Conversions 32066: F3F/Gulfhawk  Landing Gear
PRICE: $18.95 MSRP
FOR: Monogram 1/32 Kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the rather old, but still nice Monogram 1/32 F3F-3 which has also been released as the Gulfhawk. Now this is a great use for metal gear as the landing gear on this kit is designed to be extended and retracted. The metal replacement parts are sure to hold up to repeated operation a lot better than the plastic bits. As you can see, all of the various pieces for the main and tail gear are included in this set. 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.
