Scale Aircraft Conversions 48212: MiG-21 Landing Gear
PRICE: $14.95 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 MiG-21. I have not seen this kit yet, but it looks like a nice one. Typical of SAC sets, this one has the two main landing gear legs, the nose gear leg with a cast in place retraction strut and the opposite side of the nose wheel fork as well as two thinner pieces that I have to assume are part of the main gear since there are two of them. This set is a direct replacement for the one that comes in the kit.

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.
