1/32 F-14 undercarriage sets for Tamiya and Trumpeter kits now RELEASED, AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE


Recommended Posts

  • Ali62 changed the title to 1/32 F-14 undercarriage sets for Tamiya and Trumpeter kits now RELEASED, AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE

Hi Guys 

 

These sets are now available to purchase, I will be following up on all that sent me direct emails and or messages. Do not worry there will be enough for everyone, I have got a small first batch which will be released next week, as I have just finalised some of the 3D parts, I needed to fine tune some of them once I received the first batch of brass casting, so they now need to be printed. Further orders will follow as I receive more brass sets from the casters, but the sooner you order the sooner you will receive.

This project certainly turned out to n]be more complex than I anticipated at the outset. There have been quite a few changes along the way and it has been tricky to get the tolerances right on such small parts that all need to fit in and around each other.

You will notice some added parts and detail from the original images shown.

The nose wheel set is basically common between the Tamiya and the Trumpeter, with just a few adapters. I needed to amend the main undercarriage brass parts on the Trumpeter set, and the brass parts now locate directly in the side and the roof of the wheel bay.

 

NOTE I HAVE ONLY DONE THE STANDARD POSITION AND NOT THE LAUNCH STANCE SETS. I received very little interest in these, I may very well do launch nose struts in a future release for the Trumpeter kit, so if you do want that option PLEASE EMAIL ME at aerocraftmodels@gmail.com

Great news!!!

Ali-will any of these fit the Revell kit?

Just out of curiosity

Hi 

 

I am not 100% sure but I would use the Tamiya set if I was you to try as it should be fairly easy to adapt the wheel bays to accept the more square and robust anchor points.

However you would be on your own to adjust all to get everything to fit.

 

cheers Ali

I received two sets of Trumpeter legs from Ali this morning. These sets are just SUPERB!

 

I genuinely believe he's outdone himself on this occasion. The brass legs are smooth, strong and great-looking. The 3-D printed parts are tiny and beautifully-done, too.  They are a very big upgrade from Trumpy's kit-supplied legs and well-worth the money, IMHO.  

 

Cheers. 

 

Chris.

Thank you for the kind words Chris, those that are waiting for their sets, that do not have dispatched emails as yet, more brass should be with me in about a week to ten days, then I will mail them to you.

If this is the Quality of the Landing gear you're doing! ..... then I can't wait for the F-18 Landing gear sets!

Agree wholeheartedly. My for-Trumpeter set arrived last week and it looks super.

 

F/A-18 cantilever MLG to fit the 1/32 Academy legacy Hornets would also be handy. (The 1/48 scale ones look the business.)

I got my F-14 set the other day and it’s fantastic. 
 

could really use Academy and Trumpeter F-18 sets as well. 
 

Thanks, Ali, for taking the time to do things right and really well. 
 

Chris
