This is a white metal landing gear set is to for the AFV Kit IDF F-CK-1C/D 1/48th Scale aircraft.

The white metal parts are good are have better-defined details than the original kit parts. They are a very good replacement for the already well details kit parts. The advantage is these white metal parts will provide more strength than the kit parts. The parts included replacing the parts E40, E11, E42, E36, E17, E15, E44, E13, and E46. I did expect to see replacements for E 34, E 37 and E33 but these were not included and it would have added more to this set.

The parts are well cast; you do need to sand off the few cast seams and metal pour points. The parts were a perfect fit to the existing mount and were easy to assemble. A couple of the metal parts were a little bent but very easy to correct.

I recommend these parts are a great addition to an already extremely well-detailed kit.

Thanks go to Scale Aircraft Conversions for providing this set to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them.
