SAC 32052 Skyhawk Nose Gear For 1/32nd Scale Trumpeter Model
Skyhawk Nose Gear For 1/32nd Scale Trumpeter Model SAC 32052
As you can see from the photo, the lower yoke and wheel are rendered as separate parts. We recommend the parts be painted separately. When dry, gently spread both sides of the yoke at the same time until the space between will accomodate the wheel. Then close the sides of the yoke at the same time. This will prevent warping of the yoke.
Metal parts will not warp under the weight of a built model regardless of the size of the aircraft, no matter how many years it stands on display.
Another advantage of white metal is the way it holds up under "working" conditions (drilling, scoring, sanding, etc.), as it is much more dense than styrene plastic and has a much higher melting point.
Being quite malleable, it can be bent without the fear of breaking & a useful characteristic when it comes to final alignment "tweeking".
