Reviewer's Comments

This landing skid set from SAC is a direct replacement for the kit parts. The white metal casting is superb as is usual for SAC. The kit consists of five parts: two main skids, one tail skid, and two skid braces.

Instructions are not provided, but they are not required since the parts are intended to be direct replacements for the kit parts. The parts are very nicely detailed, and clean. There are no mold seams visible, and no sanding or filing was required.

Prior to painting it is recommended to wash the parts with a mild detergent solution to remove any remaining mold release. I would recommend using a gel-type of CA adhesive to bond the parts together.

This landing gear set is highly recommended for its excellent quality and simple installation. It will absolutely provide a more robust base for your AH-1Z model.

Thank you for SAC for the honor to review the fantastic accessory and thank you to IPMS for the opportunity.
