Scale Aircraft Conversions has produced replacement gear for the Hasegawa 1/72 scale F-4 Phantom kits.  The white metal replacements are a clean drop-in for the kit plastic parts.  The supplied items include two main gear struts, and one nose gear strut with a separate oleo scissor and retraction strut.  Some other SAC packages include replacement wheels, as well, but not the case here.  You will need to use the Hasegawa wheels for your build.

A side by side evaluation (see photos) indicates an identical replacement that should provide a greater strength assembly with a significantly improved weight capacity and abuse tolerance.  In some cases where original equipment was left in a natural metal finish, painting may not be necessary.  As always, check your reference photos

Highly recommended.

Thanks to the IPMS Reviewer Corps and Scale Aircraft Conversions for the opportunity to review this item.
