Scale Aircraft Conversions 48118: F-80 landing gear
PRICE: $12.95 MSRP
FOR: Revell-Monogram 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

More jet goodies for you with this set from Scale Aircraft Conversions. It is designed for the older, but still very nice Mongram 1/48 F-80C Shooting Star that was just recently reissued. This one includes the two main landing gear struts and a new nose gear with oleo scissors molded in place.

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.
