First Look

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.

Tornado Landing Gear Supplemental Parts

This release contains an optional set of landing gear mounts for the main gear that aren't included in the basic Tornado Landing Gear set. The basix set assumes that you'd use the styremen parts to mount the main gear, but there was enough demand for these mounts in metal that SAC has released these as an optional set to keep the cost of the basic set as low as possible.

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!
