Scale Aircraft Conversions 48150: F3H Demon Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Hobby Boss 1/48 kits
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This next new Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the new Hobby Boss 1/48 F3H Demon. This is actually a very large aircraft so would benefit from metal gear. Nose gear, retraction strut, and an additional strut for the front, while the bits under the wings have the main gear legs and the retraction strut for those.

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.
