Scale Aircraft Conversions (SAC) manufactures white metal landing gear that is a direct replacement for the kits plastic landing gear. The metal landing gear offer greater strength over the kit parts as well as having most of the mold lines removed. At times the metal will be bent out of shape but that is easily corrected by bending it back to the correct shape.

This set includes six parts, the main gear struts, two retract arms, one tailwheel trailing link and strut. All the main gear and tailwheel items are exact copies of the kit parts with most of the mold lined cleaned up. The tailwheel kit part has excessive molding flash and that is cleaned up on the SAC version.

SAC gear does require some clean up for the rare cases there are still seam lines. You many also sand and prime the struts to remove some of the rough texture that appears in some areas. Installing the new gear requires CA glue or non-traditional modeling adhesives. SAC recommends that the gear is for experienced modelers that are use to working with metal gear.

When you need strong landing gear that will not let your model down, SAC has you covered. I would like to thank Scale Aircraft Conversions for this review sample.
