Company: Scale Aircraft Conversions
Thanks to Ross at SAC for continuing to provide us review items; we at IPMS USA sincerely appreciate your contributions!
This set is, yet again, a simple drop-in replacement for the kit items. The set contains two main gear struts, a nose gear, and the retraction strut for the nose gear. Definitely a must if you are adding a lot of weight to the model; and particularly useful if everyone who views your model wants to “spin the rotor” (too much temptation) and see if it works.
(Office fun if you take models to work: Make your wheels, props and rotors fit real tight and watch the face of the holder when they snap off parts. Of course, there is the repair, but it’s a common theme.)
The usual notes apply to this gear; they fit perfectly, and provide the same level of strength and “peace of mind” with attaching wheels/tires to the axles. No wobbly gear here, and the short stroke of the struts makes it easy to fit them in place. The only problem that I see is you cannot see the gear in the well; it is pretty well hidden by the wheels and how short they are in the wells, but again the strength is the key.
