1/48 Hawker Hunter Landing Gear

Product # 48173 for Academy / Italeri kit

Product Article by Steve Bamford on Sept 8 2020



This metal landing gear set from Scale Aircraft Conversions features a set of landing gear for the Hawker Hunter from Academy / Italeri.  

This is a correction set. The length of the nose and main struts have been corrected to fit the corrected (resized) wheels. The detail of the struts has also been rendered more accurately. Though not load bearing parts, the gear door retraction arms have been included because the plastic kit parts are extremely fragile. We wish to thank Mr. John Adams, owner of Aeroclub, for his contribution to this set. His wheels are "spot on" and the resizing of struts gives this kit the proper stance. 

These landing gear are cast from metal and include the main gear legs as well as the nose landing gear leg.  The level of detail is good and the casting quality is excellent.  These landing gear will give you added strength. 

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.
