Another of the many sets from SAC that I've used. Like those this one (SAC #72110) reproduces the kit parts in soft white metal with one exception, the tail wheel part leaves a gap over the tire that looks more refined then the kit part. Test fit the main wheels on their mounts because that is the point the part was cast from. When you cut it from the sprue, it needs some file work to get a good fit. The metal parts in this case have the advantage of allowing slight adjustments once they're in place. That's helpful because this aircraft has some strange angles in the gear mounts. In the photos I've installed one Airfix and one SAC main gear leg for comparison. This set is a nice addition to a nice little kit.

Thank you IPMS and SAC for the sample.
