Scale Aircraft Conversions 72127: Shackleton Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Airfix 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the new Airfix Shackleton kit. The set consists of the two main landing gear legs with the very long retraction struts. These and the mount for the tail gear are encased in a metal sprue to prevent damage. The set also includes a tail gear leg. These are specifically designed for the Airfix kit so it is doubtful they will fit the Revell AEW.2. These are nicely molded and 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.
