Scale Aircraft Conversions 48197: F-35B Landing Gear
PRICE: $17.95 MSRP
FOR: Kitty Hawk 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the new KittyHawk 1/48 F-35B Lightnine II kit. Typical of modern jets, the landing gear is a bit on the complex side and includes two new main gear struts with oleo scissors and a pair of retraction struts per leg. The main gear is a bit more basic with an oleo scissor and retraction strut. This set is a direct replacement 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 is the norm, some of the pieces  could be 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.
