Scale Aircraft Conversions 72070:F-89D/J Scorpion Landing Gear
PRICE: $13.95 MSRP
FOR: Revell 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Revell 1/72 F-89D/J Scorpion. I'm not sure when it was last released, but if you can locate it, it is a very nice kit of this aircraft. The set has the two main gear struts, a nose gear strut and the large retraction strut for it. There is a smaller metal sprue that has a number of parts on it. I'll hazard a guess and say that the two identical pieces are for the main gear and the two dissimilar bits are for the nose gear. By putting these small pieces on a metal sprue, it prevents any problems with damage. These pieces are direct replacements for the kit parts. As you can see, the molding is first rate.

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