Scale Aircraft Conversions 48222: FW-200 Landing Gear
PRICE: $22.95 MSRP
FOR: Trumpeter 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the older Trumpeter 1/48 FW-200 Condor kit. It has to be the most parts intensive landing gear set I have every seen. However, if you have seen the landing gear on the real plane, you can understand why. These are basically a cagework sort of gear with large frame structures for each of the main gear. The set duplicates this along with all the shocks and the myriad of retraction struts (four per side of each). A tail wheel gear set is also included in the packet. These are a direct replacement for the kit bits and the metal should make for a very sturdy construct for this equally large model. 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.
