Scale Aircraft Conversions 48208: Spiteful/Seafang Landing Gear
PRICE: $15.95 MSRP
FOR: Trumpeter 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the new Trumpeter 1/48 Seafang and Spiteful kits. The set is quite complete with new main gear legs, new tail wheel strut, oleo scissors for the main gear as well as two different sized retraction struts for the main gear. This is a correction set as apparently, the kit's main gear legs were not properly offset. These parts will fit in the spots designed for the plastic ones.

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 thin pieces may 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.
