Scale Aircraft Conversions 48131: F-14 Tomcat Landing Gear
PRICE: $18.95 MSRP
FOR: Hobby Boss 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This next new Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the new Hobby Boss 1/48 F-14A Tomcat. The set includes two main landing gear assemblies that consist of two piece gear legs and the hefty retraction struts. These struts will fit in between two sections of the main gear. In addition, SAC has provided both the standard and the lowered nose gear with the catapult bar in the appropriate position for both modes.

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.
