This metal landing gear set from Scale Aircraft Conversions features a set of landing gear for the Fw 190 from Tamiya.

*Note from Scale Aircraft Conversions: Contrary to some popular opinion the Tamiya main gear is not too short. To verify this information, you can read "Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Main Landing Gear Part Two" by Robert Stephenson & E. Brown Ryle III which can be viewed at:

You can purchase this and other landing gear sets for a variety of aircraft and scales for many, many different models directly from Scale Aircraft Conversions.
