Extra landing gear was requested by backers who would like to make a conversion of their ship so it can be modeled with either gear up or gear down. The kit comes with one set of gear already and the struts have to be glued to the pads. If you want the pads to be closed, the struts would need to be removed so an extra set of pads would come in handy to swap out during gaming.
