Scale Aircraft Conversions (SAC) produces white metal replacement parts for kits in a variety of scales. Some of their landing gear sets are for a variety of kits and some sets are designed for a specific model. The sets are designed to support the weight of a specific model without warping that can sometimes be seen with kit styrene landing gear supporting a model's nose weight.

This landing gear set is for either the Wolfpack, Italeri and Testors 1/72 scale model T-45 Goshawk. I had to add a good amount of weight in the nose to get the model to rest on its nose gear and the gear supported the weight without any problems. The aircraft with all the weight in the nose is quite steady sitting on the SAC gear set.

The parts were well cast and had no flash or other areas that needed to be sanded. The gear set had a good amount of detail molded into them. The kit comes with front strut, two main landing gear struts and two support bars for the main gear set.

When gluing the landing gear to the aircraft I used CA and the parts fit perfectly without any modifications to the join area.

The landing gear is a great addition to the T-45 Goshawk and comes with a recommendation for purchase.

I want to thank Scale Aircraft Conversions and IPMS for the ability to review this product.
