I believe Aero-Club has announced a set of cast metal landing gear for this bird. They have done them for some other 1/32 scale aircraft, including the 1/32 scale revell Hawker Hunter, a set of which I just bought. Aero-clubs website is:

Use the plastic gear as molds to cast a set in metal, or scratch build a metal set from brass tube, strip, and rod and use some of the plastic parts as detail items.

I plan to do the latter.
