Scale Aircraft Conversions (SAC) produces white metal replacement parts for kits in a variety of scales. Some of their landing gear sets are for a variety of kits and some sets are designed for a specific model. The white metal sets are designed to support the weight of a specific model without warping that can be seen with kit styrene landing gear.

The parts are for the Airfix Me-262 are well cast and had no flash or other area that needed to be sanded. I bent one of the struts when removing from the sprue but could straighten it out easily. I had to put heavier weight in the front of the jet than anticipated so it would not be a tail sitter and the SAC landing gear stood up to the weight very well.

When gluing the landing gear to the aircraft I used CA and the parts fit perfectly without any modifications to the join areas.

The landing gear would be a great addition to the model kit and is a recommendation for purchase.

I want to thank Scale Aircraft Conversions and IPMS for the ability to review this product.
