Scale Aircraft Conversions 48199: SU-25 Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Eduard/KoPro 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for a kit that has been around for a while and was recently reboxed with a bunch of aftermarket. The original kit is by KP, or KoPro as they are now called. The rebox is an Eduard kit. It is considered to be the best 1/48 Su-25 on the market. This set has a lot of parts as the landing gear on the Frogfoot is complex. New nose gear with mount, and side struts as weall as a nose tire is included. The main gear consists of several bits other than the main struts in the form of retraction struts. This set is 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.
