Scale Aircraft Conversions 48201: AN-2 Colt Landing Gear
PRICE: $17.95 MSRP
FOR: Hobby Boss 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the recent Hobby Boss 1/48 AN-2 Colt.  The set includes all the bits needed for this somewhat complex landing gear, including the main gear struts, the Vee braces and what looks like struts for the use with skis. It also includes two tail wheel struts, again a standard wheeled version and a longer set for what I guess are skis. While I cannot guarantee it, this set might also work with the older Valom kit with a bit of modification. 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.
