1/48 F-8 Crusader Landing Gear

Product # 48158 for Revell/Monogram kit

Product Article by Steve Bamford on Apr 6 2020



This metal landing gear set from Scale Aircraft Conversions features a set of landing gear for the F-8 Crusader from Revell/Monogram.  

First released in 1988, the Monogram Crusader is still an excellent kit with this exception: the kit landing gear caused the model to sit way too low. The ventral strakes almost dragged the deck. This set corrects this problem. The nose gear is taller and the main gear struts are angled properly to raise the lower fuselage. 

These landing gear are cast from metal and include the main gear legs as well as the nose landing gear leg.  The level of detail is good and the casting quality is excellent.  These landing gear will give you added strength. 

You can purchase this and other landing gear sets for a variety of aircraft and scales for many, many different models directly from Scale Aircraft Conversions.
