SAC has been around for a few years, and to my mind fills a serious need for models. As kits get more expensive, they have more detail, weigh more, and you have more invested in it. Plastic landing gear is not such a great idea in this case
This set adds structural strength to the huge Revell B-1B. It also prevents the model from taking damage as simply as plastic or resin gear would. And face it, with all the resin I just put on this kit, it needs metal gear
Now, I know many have not or will not build this kit. It’s huge. It has presence. And it’s an accurate rendition of the “Bone” .For the most part. But with work, it looks great when complete. This model is now on display on the overhead desk of my pod in our B-1/B-52 System Program office, and has garnered a lot of attention…
Use of the SAC gear is simple; not easy, because it’s a complex gear, but worth every dime and the time. You will have a hard time breaking this landing gear… it’s a direct replacement, so just follow the kit instructions using the SAC gear. I used brass tube for the axles, and the Barracudacast wheels for the B-1B.
