This is a set of white metal landing gear struts for the Eduard 1/72nd scale Bf-110E kit. The unit consists of two main gear legs, which are identical to those in the kit, two different sized tail wheels, and two sets of bracing struts. I think the smaller tail wheel would fit a Bf-109 quite nicely. No instructions were provided. There were attachment tabs on the main gear, but none for the struts, which need to be secured with superglue. In this case, I felt that the kit units were adequate, so I didn't use these, although they might prove useful on that old Monogram kit I have been eyeing on my shelf. The larger tail wheel, however, is quite nice, and has better tire tread detail than the one in the kit. I used it on my Eduard review kit.

Recommended. My thanks to Scale Aircraft Conversions and IPMS/USA for the chance to review this item.
