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 modellers.
