To me, there has always been something luxurious about cast brass landing gear legs. Pete's Hangar has now released new landing gear legs for Revell and Heller's Mirage III kits. Please note that this is a completely new and more detailed set compared to the Mirage undercarriage released by Pete's Hangar in 2003/04.

This new set comprises forward and both main gear legs plus separate retraction struts.

The parts are simple, and beautifully cast. There will be very little cleanup required. The instructions state that the legs have been designed for the Revell kit, so check the fit against the Heller kit if you choose that option.

Cast brass gear legs are well detailed and add strength to models. Pete's Hangar's new gear legs for Mirage III kits in 1/72 scale are a welcome (and luxurious) finishing touch.

Thanks to Peter from Pete's Hangar for the review sample.
