Scale Aircraft Conversions 48198: MiG-23 Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Trumpeter 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the new Trumpeter 1/48 MiG-23 Flogger kit. The Flogger does not have a simple landing gear due to the requirement to operate from unfinished surfaces. Each main landing gear leg has two major constructs with a pair of finely done retraction and gear door struts. The nose gear is only slightly less complex and includes its retraction strut as well. 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 can be 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.
