First Look

Scale Aircraft Conversions is a company based here in the US that is offering numerous aircraft update sets that will allow you to replace the kit supplied landing gear struts with a white metal replacement. The white metal is a lot stronger than the styrene parts found in the kits. Most of these sets are straight replacements for the kit parts, needing no extra work to use.

This set is for the ICM 1/144 Avro Lancaster kit. It gives you the main struts. Detail is great and the minimal seam lines will be quick to cleanup.

You can obtain SAC landing gear from your favorite hobby retailer or online hobby shop. If your retailer can't get these for you and you can't this set at your favorite online retailer, then you can get quick service from Scale Aircraft Conversions directly.

My sincere thanks to Scale Aircraft Conversions for this review sample!
