Scale Aircraft Conversions (SAC) offers an extensive range of replacement landing gear parts for a wide variety of kits. I have some experience using SAC items to replace kit parts and I've found that the SAC items add strength to the model without sacrificing any of the detail found on the original parts.

As mentioned in other reviews, I tend to be a rather heavy-handed modeler and I have a long history of "critical parts" failure with WWI models which is self-made and not a reflection on the quality of the original kit. I've snapped wing struts in half, broken off tail skids, and caused catastrophic damage to undercarriage support structures.

I now take it for granted that when I select a WWI aircraft model as my next project one of my first actions is to visit the SAC website and search for any SAC products that can replace kit parts such as wing struts and landing gear components. I have found that SAC gear replacement parts are a positive addition to my modeling effort.

SAC offers a set of white metal replacement parts for the WNW Halberstadt CL.II. which includes a tail skid, axle for landing gear, and axle brackets. There is no flash to remove and these parts are ready for painting and fitting to the fuselage. No instructions are required for the SAC parts. The SAC replacement parts are identical to the kit parts in detail, size, and dimension. The significant difference is that the SAC parts are made of white metal and that feature adds considerable strength to the undercarriage.

This product is highly recommended due to the detail found on the product parts, the strength of the parts, and the reasonable price for the product.

Thanks to Scale Aircraft Conversions for making this gear set available to IPMS/USA for this review.
