PostSubject: G FACTOR Brass injection landing gear   Wed Jan 01, 2014 10:27 am

I ordered these the other day from Hannants and I thought I'd like to share this with you guys. It's a reasonably new crowd called G FACTOR and they specialise in a newish process of injection molded Brass. The quality is excellent but the main advantage over White Metal is that it is far more sturdy and weighty which means less bent and damaged bits when you finally receive it from the ultra careful Postal service! They are currently limited on subjects but as with anything, demand will rectify that and i am sure that there is certainly going to be demand for these gems. I ordered a couple of sets for Fw 190 A-D, Mig 21 and P51-D and at about 13 Dollars a set including postage, I shall be stocking up on these babes for sure.

Packaging is simple....



There is some flash but this is easily rectified with a half decent set of needle files - the one on the left has been cleaned up...



And this is the final product...



Happy modeling.....  santa

Injection Molded Brass....
Okaaay.

Do they work out cheaper than the white metal jobbies?
I suppose they would also be a bit stronger, or should I say, they are more modeler proof than some of the white metal bits.
Wonder if they are going to start doing bits for tanks as well.
