Scale Aircraft Conversions 72052: B-18 Bolo Landing Gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Special Hobby 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the recent Special Hobby 1/72 B-18 Bolo. Now I know that many of you are already saying 'hey, this looks like DC-3/C-47 landing gear. Well, that is not surprising as the B-18 is based on that aircraft. You get two main gear legs retraction struts and other gear braces. Also in the set is a two piece tail gear. This is a direct replacement for kits parts .

The gear is quite sturdy, and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them. As is the norm, some of the thin pieces are a tad bent, but will straighten up quite easily.

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