Scale Aircraft Conversions 48112: F-5F Tiger II landing gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Revell-Monogram 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

After a ten month hiatus, Scale Aircraft Conversions has sent in a ton of metal gear sets. So, starting with the 1/48 sets, this particular one is for the Revell-Monogram 1/48 F-5F Tiger II, recently reissued by Revell AG and recently previewed. The kit included the two main landing gear with retraction struts, and a two piece nose gear with the nose wheel fork being a separate item. There is an indentation in the nose strut for the fork, though you may want to trill it out a bit more.

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.
