FirstLook

 

Flight Line Resin appears to be a Phase Hangar Accessories brand created by Richard VanZandt.

Flight Line Resin has released a set of 1/48 scale A-4 Skyhawk landing gear legs. This set will be suitable for Hasegawa A-4F, A-4M, 2 seat A-4S kitd and Phase Hangar A-4K, TA-4K and OA-4M cockpits. Wheels are not included.

 

 

The set comprises four parts in grey 3D printed resin and a length of brass tube.

The main landing gear legs are supplied in one piece each and appear to be ready to install with almost no preparation required.

 

 

The nose gear is made up from an upper and lower section plus a length of brass tube for the oleo strut. This should allow the nose wheel to be steerable, or at the very least posed to taste.

 

 

The two resin nose wheel parts have the usual 3D printed attachment points, narrowing as they come closer to the actual parts. This should be a fast and easy cleanup.

 

 

Detail on all parts are crisp and comprehensive.

The Hasegawa 1/48 A-4E/F and TA-4J kits are hard to find at the moment but it looks like they may be re-released later this year. Keep your eyes open.

 

 

Conclusion

 

Flight Line Resin's 1/48 scale A-4 Skyhawk Landing Gear is a luxurious finishing touch for your Hasegawa Scooters.
