Scale Aircraft Conversions 72078: P-38 Lightning Landing Gear
PRICE: $11.95 MSRP
FOR: RS and Academy 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal


This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the RS or the Academy P-38 Lightning. Since they fit two different kits, I'd have to assume there has been some copying going on by RS! The set includes the two main landing gear legs, retraction struts and oleo scissors, the latter being in a metal sprue to avoid shipping damage. The main gear leg and its retraction strut completes the set. The set is very nicely cast and a direct replacement for the kit bits. Any bent bits can easily be hand straightened.

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