The Parts:

Included in this product are 22 white metal replacement parts for the Zvezda 1/144th scale 747-800. The Zvezda product number for the 747-800 kit is 7010. These white metal parts replace all but one of the Zvezda gear parts contained in the kit. The only Zvezda gear part not replaced by the replacement parts is E58, a part that attaches to the nose gear strut. Of course, the tires and wheels, themselves are not included as kit parts that are replaced and the builder will use those supplied in the kit.

As usual, the SAC replacement parts can be substituted for the kit parts without interference with the order of construction called for in the kit instructions.

Conclusion:

This Scale Aircraft Conversions product is highly recommended. The white metal parts lend some much appreciated strength to the landing gear, beyond that which the plastic kit parts provide. The SAC parts required no clean-up or sanding.

Thanks to SAC and for providing this product for review.
