Scale Aircraft Conversions 72192: Petalyakov Pe-8 Landing Gear
PRICE: $18.95 MSRP
FOR: Zvezda 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This Scale Aircraft Conversions offering is for the Zvezda 1/72 Pe-8 kit from a few years back. Typical of large bombers of the time, it has a main landing gear that encompasses the wheel so you have the usual fairly hefty landing gear legs along with large retraction struts and braces. This set also includes a tail gear. Nice thing about cast metal is that it is fairly easy to install wheels without scratching them. 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.
