Scale Aircraft Conversions (or "SAC") make replacement landing gear for a wide variety of aircraft in all the major scales. They are cast in white metal, which is stronger than the kit's plastic pieces. To quote the company's website, "Some sets consist of the main gear only, while others include the nose gear, tail gear and/or adjacent related components. Some inaccuracies in the original kit gear have been corrected but the mounting points remain identical to the factory parts."

This set is made to replace the parts for Airfix's new-mold Bristol Blenheim, either the Mk.I or Mk.IV. As you can see from the pictures, they're direct replacements for the kit parts. The level of detail is very similar, though I think I like SAC's tail wheel a bit better.

Of course, being made of the kind of metal they are, some parts may bend a bit during shipping. They straighten easily and are quite sturdy when assembled. Recommended.

Thanks go to SAC for the review sample and to IPMS/USA for allowing me to review this set.
