Scale Aircraft Conversions 72079: FW-190 Landing Gear
PRICE: $11.95 MSRP
FOR: Airfix 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal. Upgrade set

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the new Airfix 1/72 FW-190 kit. As it doesn't say it is just for the 190A kit, it may well fit older Airfix 190s. The set includes both main gear and retraction struts as well as the one-piece tail gear/wheel. In order to take care of what Airfix somehow forget to add to the kit, this set also includes a pitot tube as well as the DF loop antanna that fits under the fuseagle. How Airfix missed those is a mystery. The set is entirely enclosed in a metal sprue to prevent damage to the parts during shipping. These are replacements and additions to the kit bits.

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