Scale Aircraft Conversions 48218: Attacker Landing Gear
PRICE: $17.95 MSRP
FOR: Trumpeter 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the recent Trumpeter 1/48 Supermarine Attacker. This kit has a bit of a goof in that the attachment point for the main gear is wrong. To fix that, a new set of wheel wells is included in this set. Also in the set is a pair of main gear legs with the properly shaped attached gear doors, retraction struts and oleos. A new tail gear assembly is also included. These bits fit in the place of the kit parts so no need to do any surgery on the 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.
