Scale Aircraft Conversions 72089: C-47/DC-3 Landing Gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Airfix 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Airfix 1/72 C-47/DC-3. Now I do not think it is for the new tool kit because that aircraft's gear has an additional smaller retraction strut so I'll go out on a limb and say this is for the older version. The set consists of the two main gear legs as well as the Y shaped retraction arms. As you can see, one of the retraction arms is broken. This happens from time to time and SAC will replace broken bits like this if you send them an e-mail. This is an easy break to fix with super glue as well. Anyway, there is also the single piece tail gear/wheel. These are direct replacements for the kit parts

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