Scale Aircraft Conversions 48129: F-105 Landing Gear
PRICE: $17.95 MSRP
FOR: Hobby Boss 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

The F-105 has some of the most spindly landing gear of any aircraft I've ever modeled. Thanks to Scale Aircraft Conversions, we now have a more robust set of landing gear that should reduce that tendency. This set is for the  Hobby Boss 1/48 kit and includes a pair of main landing gear legs along with oleo scissors. The rest of the parts are for nose gear, which is a bit on the complex side.

The parts are 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.
