Scale Aircraft Conversions 72053: Buccaneer Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: CMR and Airfix 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for an older kit, the CMR 1/72 Buccaneer. These parts will also fit the Airfix kit with a bit of modification to the fuselage attachment points. Though not so stated, I would think these could be adjusted to fit the Matchbox kit if anyone still has one of those. The set includes not only the main gear legs and nose gear leg, but also the wheels. This is a direct replacement for the CMR kit parts .

The gear is quite sturdy, and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them. As can happen, some of the thin pieces may be 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.
