Scale Aircraft Conversions 24004: FW-190 Landing Gear
PRICE: $18.95 MSRP
FOR: Trumpeter 1/24 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the older Trumpeter 1/24 FW-190. As you can imagine, the gear is pretty hefty stuff as the pars are quite large. This set includes two main gear struts, the retraction struts and the two piece oleo scissors. The tain gear and separate wheel fork are also included. Gear like this is perfect for the rather heavy 1/24 kits. These are direct replacements for the kit parts.

The gear is quite sturdy, and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them. As is the norm, some of the pieces are a tad bent, but will straighten up quite easily.

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