I am working on an F-18B Blue Angels Number 7 conversion to be displayed on landing gear. I have spent some two hours or more reading reveiews on ARC. One person who had built two of these commented that on the first one, some cracks had developed in the kit metal reinforced landing gear. How many of you have seen and or heard how the kit gear holds up ?
The modelers solution was to use BRASS landing gear from a supplier on the second model. Does anyone have experience with brass gear and its detail and durability ? Yes, i'm aware of the white metal landing gear, but thought that the brass would be much stronger. Seems that i've read that the white metal can sag too.
Any comments and tips will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, George
