Before I ordered this upgrade set, I had already created a set of folded landing legs by re-scaling the imagery from the AXM Paper Space Models 1/100 sc ale Falcon 9 model to 1/86 scale for the SpaceX Flclon 9 flying model. When I received the Boyce upgrade set, I jad planned to replaced the paper legs with those from Boyce, but found that the Boyce legs were smaller than the corrected 1/86 scale paper legs from AXM. I did use the Boyce 3D printed Grid Fins, which appear to be correctly sized. Based on the comparison of the two sets of legs, the boyce legs are about 5-8% smaller than they should be. Not a lot, but enough. However, for the first time userwho wants a more realistic appearance and has not re-scaled AXM paper model parts, the Boyce legs will look good on your Falcon.
nice detail easy looks good on rocket
The parts are extremely well done. I have not yet installed them and in fact still in the sanding process but had to put on hold because of real life stuff. The customer service at Boyce Aerospace Hobbies is top notch! You cannot go wrong with this upgrade kit!
