Scale Aircraft Conversions 72021: BAe Nimrod landing gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Airfix 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

Moving to 1/72 scale for the next round of new metal gear, this particular set is for the very nice and quite large Airfix 1/72 Nimrod, one of the last kits of the 'old' Airfix before Horby bought and revitalized the company. This one includes the two main landing gear struts and a new nose gear, each with the respective retraction strut assembly. 

The gear is 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.
