Scale Aircraft Conversions 48235: I-16 Type 24/29 Landing Gear
PRICE: $13.95 MSRP
FOR: Eduard 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

Going back to the late 1930s, we have this set for the Polikarpov I-16 Type 24/29. Like other Scale Aircraft Conversions sets, this one is a direct replacement for the kit parts. It consists of the two main gear legs, two oleo scissors and a pair of retraction struts. This set also includes both a wheeled tail gear and a skid, depending on the aircraft you are modeling. Since the gear is rather thin, both it and the struts are encased in a metal fret. As always, if you find a piece slightly bent, it is quite easy to straighten.

You can order these direct at if your local hobby shop or favorite on-line retailer does not stock them.
