Scale Aircraft Conversions 48295: XF5U-1 Landing Gear
PRICE: $17.95 MSRP
FOR: Kitty Hawk 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the New Kitty Hawk 1/48 XF5U-1 'FlapJack'. The set consists of the two main landing gear legs, main retraction legs and the small struts for the main gear. There are a pair of oleo scissors for the main gear as well. The tail gear leg has the small wheel attachment piece already molded in place and is worth getting just for this feature. The tail gear oleo and mounting section is also included with the set. They are nicely molded and will add some additional strength to the kit.

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