Scale Aircraft Conversions 48285: F4F Wildcat Landing Gear
PRICE: $18.95 MSRP
FOR: Tamiya 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the venerable Tamiya 1/48 F4F Wildcat. It seems a bit odd to be calling this kit venerable, but it really has been that long since it was initially produced. It hearalded the return of Tamiya to 1/48 aircraft kits and while that trend seems to have slowed down quite a bit, they are still producing new ones every now and again.

The set is rather complex as befits the Wildcat. There are a lot of parts to the main gear struts and SAC has protected several of these bits with metal sprues. An airframe attachment piece is included as is a tail wheel piece. These bits are direct replacement for the Tamiya pieces and have the benefit of being a tad more pliable than plastic so this will help you keep all the bits aligned.
