This is a white metal landing gear set is to for the Sword 1/48 English Electric Lighting T. Mk4/5 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 and last longer than the kit parts.

The parts include the main two gear struts components that replaces part numbers 78, 79, 27, 57, 56, 60 and 61. The front strut parts which replaces part numbers 7, 84 and 59.

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.

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.
