I just finished casting a limited batch of replacement nose gear struts for HPH's Tigercat. I was originally going to do the mains too but I think they are strong enough. They are investment cast in brass and are solid as a rock. These sell for $16 and $2 for shipping within the US and $4 international. I receive Paypal payments at gfactormodels@aol.com. 

 

Thanks! Ernie

They do look good, but too late for me. The secondary arm though may still need to be extended if cast in the OOB length, as the stock arm put the nose gear at a straight up and down 90deg angle to the model

Yes indeed, the F7F nose gear looks great, and its a needed addition for sure. However, Ive said it a hundred times, that the OV-10 gear is what really needs to happen, as I know SO many people (not even including the emphatic people wanting it in this thread!) who would want a set, as anyone building an OV-10 will find out, brass gear for that kit is about as, if not more warranted than any kit previous.

Even with the complicated design, if we have to JB weld parts together, so be it!  I'm ready!!
