Scale Aircraft Conversions 32073 A-1 Skyraider Landing Gear
PRICE: $21.95 MSRP
FOR: Trumpeter 1/32 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the new Trumpeter 1/32 Skyraider kit. This set has refined main gear retraction arms as apparently the kit ones needes some work. The set is quite complex as you'd imagine for a kit in this scale. There are the main gear legs, along with four different pairs of retraction struts/braces. Some very thin ones are encased in sprue to keep them from being broken during shipment. Also included in the set is a new tail gear along with its brace or perhaps that is part of the oleo. The casting is superbly done. As with all metal sets like this, you might find some of the thinner parts bent, but they can easily be straightened out.

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