Scale Aircraft Conversions 48079: F-111 landing gear
PRICE: $18.95 MSRP
FOR: Hobby Boss 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This set is designed for the  new Hobby Boss kit and is really quite comprehensive. As you may notice in the image, the very large and sturdy main landing gear section as well as the lower attachment section are in with the set. There is also the beefy retraction strut and brace in the set. The nose gear is also included along with its usual braces. As with others in the series, these are direct replacements for the kit parts, making installation quite easy. You could probably also adapt these to the Academy kit if you wished to do so.

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.
