Default Flight Miniatures Delta B717-200 SuperDetailed and Modified

Hello...
Pictures of my Delta 717 by FM modified with attenas and some decals below.
Only took about 4hours of work.. My first completed project involving modifying or repainting a model.

Only question I have for you guys is.... Is it worth it to put gears on?
I mean, the decals were like $3. A lot of old 1:72 WWII military model kit decal spares.. So it's not like it cost a lot but.. If I were to put gears on it, what Boeing aircraft from Hogan wings Landing Gear parts would it have to be? Like the separately sold gear? I was thinking 737-300../400/500.
Also,
Plastic for the win!

I have a Flight Miniatures AF B 747-100 and I installed a set of landing gear on it, I have no regret.
It is worth trying, it looks much better sitting on its landing gear.

Thank you all for the compliments.
I would like constructive critiscm i.e: What details need to be put on

While I love my models in flight,
I really think it would look cool with landing gears, and maybe a wooden stand?
So what gear do I use? I'd like hogan...
Thanks again for the compliments


PLASTIC ROCKS!

Looks good. Here's a thread of someone adding landing gear to an AirTran 717.

Wish some manufacturer would make a photo etched set of 1/200 antennas

We used standard DC-9 gear and it looked great. You might also wait for a diecast one to come out and use the gear from that but it would cost a bit
