Scale retract landing gears and spinners
 
Hi!

One friend here in Brazil, Douglas, have started to build custom spinners and retract landing gears. The landing gears are awrsome, scale, huge and high detailed, for jets, warbirds, etc. Made with high grade aluminum. Here are some pictures of a scale landing gear set for a 747 with almost 10ft wingspan and 16Kg (35lb):

In this pictures are the latest set of landing gears he made, for a Heinkel Salamander with 79in wingspan, kero turbine:

The spinners are very beautiful and scale.
These spinners are for a CmPro Me-109 da CmPro and for a TopFlite 1/5 P-51 Mustang:

Chutt, outstanding workmanship, shame you're in Brazil as shipping would be an issue. I'm sure there may be some way around that though. I have some electric jackscrew retracts in my modified P-51 with a Sachs 5.8 but yours sure look beautiful. I,m sure with some advertising you will be successful!
Regards, sugarfox!
