Scale Aircraft Conversions, or SAC, make replacement landing gear for a wide variety of aircraft, in all the major scales. They are cast in white metal, which is stronger than the kit's plastic pieces. To quote the company's website, "Some sets consist of the main gear only while others include the nose gear, tail gear and/or adjacent related components. Some inaccuracies in the original kit gear have been corrected but the mounting points remain identical to the factory parts."

This set is made to replace the parts for Tamiya's F-16CJ. They seem to be direct replacements for the kit parts, providing more strength and should withstand more handling during construction than the kit parts might. They'll definitely help add to the beefy look of the later F-16 landing gear.

These are well-made parts that should be drop-in replacements. Thanks to SAC for providing the set for review and to IPMS/USA for allowing me to review it.
