Default Wanted Rhom all metal "JET" Gear

Im trying to help out a fellow Jet modeler. We are looking for a set of main gear made and discontinued by RHOM many years ago. They are the all metal low profile RHOM "Jet" gear. They are a drop in replacement for the old BVM black carbon gear.. They were made with two different diameter air cylinders. We need the larger approx 3/4 inch diameter cylinders, not the smaller 5/8 inch diameter. Will pay a fair or more than fair price for them assuming they are in good working order. Thanks

Don't the BVM Air Blue retracts fit in place of these?

I dont think so. Width of the required opening is probably the same but hole spacing isnt. I guess he could make these work possibly with new holes in the old flex plates or new flex plates with holes to match the blue gear.

The hole spacing is the same. The strut offset is the same. The blue ones are designed for outboard cylinders however
