Scale Aircraft Conversions 72068: B-47 Stratofortress Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Hasegawa 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

The Hasegawa 1/72 B-47 kit was one of their earliest releases, so new it is not. However, that doesn't mean that it is not worthy of having some metal gear made for it. This Scale Aircraft Conversions set  contains both of the beefy main landing gear struts along with their retraction struts and oleo scissors. The two outrigger gear are also included in this set. These parts are direct replacements for the kit bits so fit should not be an issue. They are superbly cast and like many metal sets, you might find some of the thinner bits have been bent during shipment. It is an easy fix to bend them back. Thanks to all the aftermarket suddenly being made available for the B-47, this set will help to really make the kit shine.

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