Scale Aircraft Conversions (SAC) produces an impressive array of white metal replacement landing gear for a variety of models. Some of these sets correct different issues that appeared in production kits, while others are simple common sense replacements to have stronger landing gear on your model.
This release is targeted for the awesome Airfix 1/24 Mosquito kit. If Scale Aircraft Conversions charged for their landing gear by the pound, this is definitely one of their heavier sets and for good reason. This set replaces the kit's styrene landing gear legs and cross-members. In addition, the tail wheel fork, mount, and castor are also replicated, all to provide the model with a stronger set of legs.
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!
