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.

He 219 Uhu Landing Gear

This release is targeted for the Tamiya 1/48 He 219 Uhu kit. This set provides replacement main gear struts, retraction arms and that long nose gear strut with its retraction arm. This set is a drop-in replacement for the Tamiya kit landing gear and you'll have a stronger alternative to hold up that model. If you haven't built this kit, that cockpit section is also metal to provide enough ballast to hold the nose down, so a strong nose gear is essential.

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!
