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 Trumpeter 1/24 Bf 109 kit. It gives you the main struts and the tail wheel strut. Detail is great and the minimal seam lines will be quick to cleanup.

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