S.O.W. Landing Gear Sets Currently Available:

 

MLGS 1001   Messerschmitt Bf 109G/K Set 

(for Hasegawa Bf 109 G/K kits)

 

Price:  $17.95 per set

 

This set is for the Hasegawa 109 in the G-4 through G-14 and K-4 range. It also features added towing loops and pre-shortened axles. This axle process makes the gear suitable for kit wheels and aftermarket, ie. MDC and Barracuda products. The music wire makes shortening the axle problematic for the user, so we've done that in advance.

MLGS 1002   Messerschmitt Bf 109F-2/4 Set 

(for Hasegawa Bf 109F-2/4 kits)

 

Price:  $17.95 per set

 

This set also features the towing loops as well as the kit's hydraulic line overlapping the oleo. Be aware these lines are delicate and need care when handling. You can also remove the resin lines and use your own setup. We wanted to give the buyer a choice on which route to take. The pre-shortened axle modification applies to this set, as well.

MLGS 1003   Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6/G-10 Set 

(for Revell Bf 109G-6/G-10 Kits)

 

Price:  $18.95 per set

 

This set addresses the inherent weaknesses in the kit's design. Our parts will eliminate the overly-complex assembly stage while adding strength with stainless steel tubing and intricate bends in the music wire. This makes for a very rigid landing gear assembly.

MLGS 1004   Focke-Wulf  Fw 190A-8/F-8 

(for Revell Fw 190A-8/F-8 kits)

 

Price:  $17.95 per set     OUT OF PRODUCTION - Temporary - retooling

 

As with the Revell 109, set we address the thin axle in the original design by adding music wire to give a rigid gluing surface for the wheel assembly.

Above is the complex interior stainless steel tubing and music wire structure needed to add necessary support for the very thin nose gear leg.

Detailing of the towing loops enhances to the stainless steel oleo reveal.

polyurethane resin.

 

MLGS 1013  Lockheed P-38 "Lightning"

(for Trumpeter kit)

 

Price:  $27.95 per set  Price Change

This is a complex set of gear to engineer....the main gear legs each have 2 pieces of SS tubing and 4 pieces of various diameters of

music wire all encapsulated in a strong resin shell. The nose gear is strong enough to take any amount to weight needed to keep this

baby from being a tail sitter!

Some external modifications have been made from the kit parts:

 

The diameter of the main and nose oleos were determined to be a bit underfed, so they've been beefed up. The nose gear was missing

its towing loop and the torque links were basically blobs - out they went and new parts were fabricated and added to give a better

presentation.  That took a while, but I'm hoping you'll think it was worth it.

 

MLGS 1014   Republic P-47 "Thunderbolt"

(for Hasegawa kit)

 

Price:  $17.95 per set.

This set is as tough as they get - large diameter SS and music wire innards will take a licking and keep on.....well, you know the rest!

 

MLGS 1015   Republic P-47 "Thunderbolt"

(for Trumpeter kit)

 

Price:  $17.95 per set.

Engineered in the same manner as the set above, but tailored for all Trumpeter P-47 kits.

 

MLGS 1018 Junkers Ju 88A-1/4 Set

(for Revell Kit)

 

Price:  $28.95 per set.  Price Change

Made withe the same engineering process as our other gear sets - stanless steel tube(5 mm),

music wire(.025", .062" & .078") and captured in polyurethane resin. The only difference is no

SS oleo reveal. The complexity of the original gear design transfers to the 1/32 gear and as a

result increases labor costs. Guaranteed to hold up to the toughest treatment, however, trying

to land your plane on the driveway from the roof voids all warranties, expressed or implied!).

 

MLGS 1019 Consolidated B-24D/J Liberator

(for HobbyBoss Kit)

 

Price:  $30.95 per set.  Price Change

These are some beefy legs, pile on as much weight in the nose as you like, they'll

take it at their ease. Engineered with 5.5 mm stainless steel tube, .094" music wire

and P/U resin.

Hi Damian, 

   Really excited about your product, and just in time for me as I've recently returned to the hobby within the past couple of years. 

   Any plans for Tamiya Corsair legs?

              "Semper Fi",

                      Bill

Hey Bill

Thanks for the compliment, appreciate it.

 

As for the Tam F4U - the kit depicts compressed oleos, which for some purpose is correct. However, there are many photos showing the oleos more extended. Both depictions appear to be correct for the given condition of the aircraft. Which one to choose? One or both? Still undecided what to do.

 

Thoughts?

 

Semper Fi!

Damian,

 

Love my Spitfire and P-38 sets.  I'm hoping you may be able to do the 1/32 Trumpeter F/A-18 family in the future.  I'm actually building the E/A-18G and putting some heavy resin pods on it and am worried the kit gear won't be able to hack the additional weight.

 

Thoughts?

 

Best,


Chris
