Scale Aircraft Conversions 72034: F-105 Landing Gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Trumpeter 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This next new Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Trumpeter 1/72 F-105. This set is good for all versions of the F-105 that Trumpeter may have kitted. Thunderchief gear are notorious for being, well a bit wiggly and now we have some nice, sturdy metal gear for it.  For the main gear, you get new main strut legs, and new retraction struts. The rather complex nose gear assembly is also very nicely done with its own retraction strut.

The parts are 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.
