Recently I was given the opportunity by IPMS USA to review Scale Aircraft Conversions

SAC has made an adaptation of the Me 262B-1/U-1 landing gear in white metal for the 1/32 Revell kit. The set contains the two main gear legs with oleo scissors and retraction struts. The main gear leg, its retraction strut, and its mount are also part of the set. I have seen photos of some 262s with an oleo scissor on the nose gear strut, but apparently, the B model did not have it. These are direct replacements for the parts that come in the Revell Me262B-1/U-1. Comparing the kit landing gear and the SAC landing gear side by side you will notice a lot of similarities between the two. Overall this is highly recommended for stronger landing gear especially since the 262 had tricycle landing gear and the nose will be weighted to keep the model from sitting on its tail. This is a great addition to the Revell kit.

I would like to thank Scale Aircraft Conversions for another great offering in metal landing gear and IPMS USA for the opportunity to review this item.
