Hey all

 I was getting a little burned out on the Hellcat, so thought I would work on something else for awhile. I've had this kicking around in my head sunce I picked up the Airfix 1/24 Mosquito kit. It's been bouncing around in there with my one brain cell, or so I've been told...lol. 

  We all know that these big 1/24th kits need metal (make that brass) landing gear to support there weight. Well since nobody makes brass ones what do you do you say? Well I think I can fix this problem with some creative scratch building.

First]  Here are the tools I used, mostly.

Hey Anthony 

This is the wrong post to answer in you should go to the other one thats the right one.

 To late already have the legs built up, would be very difficult to fix them know. Are you saying Airfix molded the legs to long, or they have them mounted to the nacelles to low?
