Scale Aircraft Conversions 72087: E.E. Lighting Landing Gear
PRICE: $12.95 MSRP
FOR: Airfix 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This new Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the recently released Airfix 1/72 English Electric Lightning. This is NOT for the older F.1/2 kit that has got to be older than many readers! I would also bet that it will be good for any later new mold Airfix Lighting kits. The set has the two main gear legs, the retraction strut assemblies withing a metal sprue and the one piece nose gear and wheel. Like all SAC gear, this set is nicely molded and is a direct replacement for the kit parts.

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