Scale Aircraft Conversions 48242: Mi-2 Hoplite Landing Gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Aero Plast 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for yet another new kit that has yet to hit the local store shelves. This time it is the Aero Plast 1/48 Mi-2 Hoplite helicopter. Being a helo, there are no retraction struts, but there are shock absorbers. This set includes both main gear V struts as well as the shock struts. The nose gear is also included. I am not sure what the other Y strut is for, but I do notice a tail strut and perhaps it is for that item.  The more fragile 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.
