To me, there has always been something luxurious about cast brass landing
gear legs. Pete's Hangar has now released new landing gear legs for two
more 1/72 scale aircraft.
The subjects to receive this glittering and glamorous workover are
the forward gear leg on 1/72 scale C-130 Hercules kits (pictured to the
right); and the forward
and both main gear legs on Heller and Revell Mirage III kits (pictured
near the top of the page). The
forward gear on the Mirage includes a cast-on nose wheel.
The parts are simple, and beautifully cast in one piece each. There
will be very little cleanup required. The only preparation before installation
and painting will be measuring the actual height of the gear legs
against the kit parts and cutting to suit.
Cast brass gear legs are well detailed and add strength to models.
Pete's Hangar's new gear legs for Mirage and Hercules kits in 1/72 scale
will be a welcome (and luxurious) finishing touch for 1/72 scale
Thanks to Peter
