Default who's gear is this? Yellow?

I bought a yellow p-47 and this gear came with it and wondering who made them? any comments on quality?
They seem to be 3/8 short for the cut outs in the wing.

BobH is right. If they are Yellow they have to be a very early version. I just looked at my yellow P-47 gear and they're definitely different than yours.

Probably Century Jet because as far as I recall they dont make any gear they contracted that out.
Clippard on that sticker is the source for pneumatic parts like the air cylinder or barbed fittings, T's, etc.

They look a little like some gear I saw by JoyRC at a trade show one time. Curious that the mounting flanges are not predrilled. They are definately not Century Jet.

Yep, it is his gear and I spoke with him this morning to confirm. He is still working on them so I may send them to him to lengthen them 3/8 to fit the 47
Thanks guys!
