Scale Aircraft Conversions 48238: Nesher/Mirage V Landing Gear
PRICE: $17.95 MSRP
FOR: Italeri 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Italeri/ESCI 1/48 Nesher/Mirage V that has recently been reissued with additional bits. Since most of the parts are from the old ESCI kit, this set of gear should fit the ESCI Mirage IIIE kit if you have one. The set includes the two main gear as well as various struts which are molded in a protective metal sprue to keep them from being bent in shipping. THe nose gear is two parts and includes a retraction strut. The info sheet states that the nose gear has been improved over the kit parts so that is nice to know. As usual, the casting is superb and these are ready to install.

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