Scale Aircraft Conversions 32046: IL-2 Sturmovik landing gear
PRICE: $18.95 MSRP
FOR: Trumpeter 1/32
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

For the new and quite large Trumpeter 1/32 kit, this Scale Aircraft Conversions landing gear set includes main gear legs along with the rather complex retraction struts that are typical of this aircraft. In addition, there are two different tail wheel strut assemblies as apparently that design changed as the aircraft design matured.

The gear is quite well cast and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them in place as they are direct replacements for the kit parts. It is not uncommon for cast metal bits to be a bit bent but some careful straightening out will bring them into line once again.

You can order these direct at if your local hobby shop does not stock them.
