Scale Aircraft Conversions 48241: Alpha Jet Landing Gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Kinetic 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for another new kit that has yet to hit the local store shelves. This time it is the Kinetic 1/48 Alpha Jet. The Alpha Jet has a somewhat complex landing gear that seems to be indicative of the times. The main gear has a 'knee' and so is in two major parts. This set includes those as well as the two struts that go along with it. The nose gear has a separate wheel fork and its own retraction strut. These smaller bits are encased in a metal sprue to keep them free from damage during shipping. As you can see, the casting is first rate and these are direct replacements for the kit bits.

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