SAC continues its prolific output of metal gear designed to support our increasingly resin-filled, detail enhanced large models; thanks for passing on this set to IPMS USA and to our leadership in forwarding it out for review!
This SAC set contains two main gear struts, strut extension braces, torque links, a tail wheel fork, the tail wheel oleo extension strut, and the tail wheel mounting trunnion tube. These are all identical to the kit items, with the exception of having more strength.
AND, the main gear strut on the SAC parts is assembled with the mounting trunnions in place; all total, 3 Airfix kit items replaced per strut with one item. Unity = Strong!
On the Airfix Typhoon kit, you must plan ahead; it is a complex kit, and there are some areas where confusion could exist as to which way certain parts go (such as the main wing spar with all it’s bracing and holes for other parts to fit into). I GOT IT WRONG at least twice, and the plastic Airfix uses is unforgiving once welded together.
