Scale Aircraft Conversions 48171: J-8B  Landing Gear
PRICE: $17.95 MSRP
FOR: Trumpeter 1/48 Kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Trumpeter 1/48 J-8B Chinese fighter. Typical of many modern jets, this one has a somewhat complex set of landing gear. The kit has main gear and retraction struts struts as well as the several piece nose gear leg and nose tire fork. These parts are direct replacements for the kit parts.

The gear is quite sturdy and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them. As you can see from the image, the casting is first rate.

You can order these direct at if your local hobby shop or favorite on-line retailer does not stock them.
