Scale Aircraft Conversions 72045: F-14 Tomcat  Landing Gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Hobby Boss 1/72 Kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the relatively new Hobby Boss 1/72  F-14A Tomcat. As seems to be the norm for F-14 kits, this one provides you with two nose gear legs. One is the normal position with the cat bar raised and the other with it lowered and the cat bar also lowered. The rest of the set are the main landing gear legs. These are direct replacements 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 you can see from the image, the casting is first rate.

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