1/48th Hobby Boss P-51D Main Gear

Recommended Posts

Normally Scale Aircraft Conversions has replacements, but it doesn't appear so for the Hobby Boss kit. I found out the hard way that a bit of surgery is required to get the gear facing the correct direction.

Thanks MA, I was hoping to avoid doing that. but it is what it is I guess.


I realized my mistake after I'd glued in the main gear struts. I was able to get the problem corrected, but it would be MUCH easier if I'd realized beforehand.


If you have a simple small saw and a drill, you can saw the lower struts at the line shown in the pic below, and swap sides. I used small wire as a bonding/reinforcing piece when I reassembled.
