We are currently producing a line of white metal landing gear for 1/18 to 1/144 scale aircraft. Some inaccuracies in the original kit gear may have been corrected but the mounting points remain identical to the factory parts.
We have not sought to duplicate some component parts where the factory plastic parts are reasonably accurate and are non-load bearing parts.
Why white metal?
One advantage of white metal over styrene plastic is strength. Metal parts will not warp under the weight of a built model regardless of the size of the aircraft, no matter how many years it stands on display. Another advantage of white metal is the way it holds up under "working" conditions (drilling, scoring, sanding, etc.), as it is much more dense than styrene plastic and has a much higher melting point. Being quite malleable, it can be bent without the fear of breaking & a useful characteristic when it comes to final alignment "tweeking". Note: our white metal contains no lead.
Tools for working with white metal.
As always, good photo references are necessary in order to achieve detail accuracy. Close up photos of landing gear are essential when you're adding stuff like hydraulic lines. Good landing gear photos for most of the aircraft in our growing series of 1/32 to 1/72 scale sets can be found in the Squadron Signal Walk Around series and the Detail & Scale series.
As well as personal checks and money orders.
All checks will have to clear before item is shipped.
