Scale Aircraft Conversions 48186: F-94C Starfire Landing Gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: KittyHawk 1/48 Kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the recent KittyHawk 1/48 F-94C Starfire. This is a correction set that takes care of the improper sit of the kit landing gear as the kit gear are molded fully compressed, which is incorrect. The set consists of the nose gear leg with retraction strut and also the main landing gear struts with their retraction strut. These fit in place of 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 is the norm, some of the pieces are a tad bent, but will straighten up quite easily.

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