Scale Aircraft Conversions 72090: Lightning T.4/5 Landing Gear
PRICE: $12.95 MSRP
FOR: Sword 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

It seems like this is the time of the Lighting for 1/72 scale modelers with kits being done by Trumpeter, Airfix and now Sword. Where the Sword kit is different is that it is the two seat version. Scale Aircraft Conversion has produced a set for this kit as you can see. It includes the two main gear legs, oleo scissors and retraction struts. These latter bits are encased in metal sprues to keep them from being badly bent during shipment. A nose gear leg is also included in the set. 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.
