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.

Albatros D.III Landing Gear

This release is targeted for the Roden 1/32 Albatros D.III kit. This set not only provides white metal replacements for the main landing gear struts, main axle assembly, and tail skid, it also provides the interplane and cabane struts as well. These white metal parts are more tolerant to handling and if overstressed, will typically bend rather than break like their plastic counterparts. Simply bend the struts back into alignment.

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!
