Scale Aircraft Conversions 72138: B-17 Flying Fortress 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 new Airfix 1/72 Flying Fortress. This kit is another of Airfix's work to update its catalogue by replacing older kits with new tool ones. Thankfully, Airfix has chosen to do a variation of the plane not already kitted in new releases. The set itself includes the two main landing gear struts with retraction gear. There is another strut included for the main gear. The tail strut is two pieces. These are direct replacements for the kit parts and are nicely molded.

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