Scale Aircraft Conversions 18003: FW-190A-5 Landing Gear
PRICE: $21.95 MSRP
FOR: Hobby Boss 1/18 1/32 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Hobby Boss 1/18 FW-190A-5. I have to confess that I did not know this kit was being produced, but apparently that is the case. I can barely get myself to finish a 1/32 kit so am not sure how I'd deal with something like this. Nonetheless, SAC has produced metal gear for it which consists of the very large main gear legs, retraction struts, oleo scissors and a three piece tail gear assembly. These are direct replacements for the kit parts and are nicely molded.

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