Company: Scale Aircraft Conversions
Base Kit: Italeri 1/48 A-10 Warthog
Scale Aircraft Conversions is an aftermarket company that makes replacement white metal landing gear. According to their website they try to fix any inaccuracies in kit parts or to provide additional support due to the weight of the kit. They provide replacement landing gear for scales from 1/24th to 1/144th scale.
The pieces included in this set are the two main landing (MLG), two MLG retraction struts, nose gear, nose gear retraction struts, and the nose gear door linkage.
The SAC parts compare well with the kit parts. The fit of the SAC parts is as good as, if not better than, the kit parts. Another advantage with these replacement parts is the material that they are made of. The white metal will allow you to make adjustments more easily; with the plastic kit parts, you have to be a lot more precise to obtain you alignment. I would recommend this to aftermarket accessory as a compliment to the intended kit.
I would like to thank Scale Aircraft Conversions and IPMS-USA for the opportunity to review this quality aftermarket set.
