Scale Aircraft Conversions 72086: SBC Helldiver Landing Gear
PRICE: $11.95 MSRP
FOR: Cyberhobby and Academy 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

The first new set this month from Scale Aircraft Conversions as a replacement set for the CyberHobby or the Academy 1/72 Helldiver. I would imagine that this set may well fit the venerable Airfix kit as well, though it would need some adjustment. It is a pretty basic set that consists of the two main gear legs, the the hefty retraction struts and a tail wheel. Since the tail wheel is the small one, it would not be appropriate for an A-25, which had a balloon tire.  It is inevitable that some of the thinner bits will be bent during shipment, but these are easily straighted out. As with all SAC sets, it is nicely molded.

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