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.

A-37 Dragonfly Landing Gear

This release is targeted for the Monogram 1/48 A-37 Dragonfly kit. This set provides replacement main landing gear struts with integral brake units as well as the nose gear strut and its retraction arm. This set is a drop-in replacement for the Monogram kit landing gear and you'll have a stronger alternative to hold up that model. This set will work with any of the releases of the classic Monogram kit including reissues from Revell and Revell/Germany.

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!
