Cutting Edge 1/48 B-24 Landing Gear First Look
|Date of Review||June 2006||Manufacturer||Cutting Edge|
|Subject||B-24 Landing Gear||Scale||1/48|
|Kit Number||CEC48485||Primary Media||White Metal|
|Pros||Simple enhancement for the Monogram B-24 kits||Cons|
|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||OOP|
Cutting Edge has developed a replacement set of landing gear for the Monogram 1/48 B-24D or B-24J kits. These were actually produced for the Cutting Edge PB4Y Privateer conversion to the Monogram B-24, but these are also being offered separately to allow you to "beef up" those styrene legs on your Liberator.
As you no-doubt know, the Monogram B-24 kit builds up into a beautiful replica of the venerable Liberator, but the weight of the kit can be hard on the landing gear, especially if your model is making the contest circuit. This replacement set can be installed in place of your plastic gear either during construction or later to repair a gear collapse.
This set includes the two main landing gear, two main landing gear retraction linkages, nose gear, and nosegear yoke (not pictured here).
My sincere thanks to Meteor Productions for this review sample!
