Scale Aircraft Conversions 48288: F4U Corsair Landing Gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Academy/Minicraft 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Academy/Minicraft F4U Corsair. This is an older kit, though still deserving of a set of metal gear. In this case, we have a two main gear legs, the two retraction struts per leg, a tail gear assembly and its retraction brace. As sometimes happens, one of the gear retraction struts is short shot and the tail hook seems to have departed the tail gear assembly. This is not a major issue as both are easily repaired. If one doesn't want to go that route, SAC will replace any bits like this as they have excellent customer service. This set 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.
