Scale Aircraft Conversions 48255: Lavochkin La-5 Landing Gear
PRICE: $13.95 MSRP
FOR: Zvezda 1/48 kit and Eduard rebox
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Zvezda 1/48 Lavochkin La-5, a kit that has also been reboxed by Eduard. This set is pretty standard stuff for a single engine WWII fighter, consisting of the two main landing gear legs, the tail gear leg (which has a two piece wheel fork) and the two main gear retraction struts. These latter pieces are encased in a metal sprue to keep bending during shipment to a minimum. As usual, this set is nicely molded and is a direct replacement for the kit parts.

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