Scale Aircraft Conversions 14409: Lancaster Landing Gear
PRICE: $12.95 MSRP
FOR: Academy 1/144 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

Starting off this month, I'll start with the smallest new Scale Aircraft Conversions set. This one is for the Academy 1/144 Avro Lancaster. As you can see, even at this size the set is pretty complete. The set has the two main landing gear legs as well as the two retraction struts per side. A tail wheel strut is also included. These are a direct replacement for the kit parts.

The gear is quite sturdy, and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them. As is the norm, some of the pieces can be a tad bent, but will straighten up quite easily.

You can order these direct at if your local hobby shop or favorite on-line retailer does not stock them.
