Scale Aircraft Conversions 32052: A-4 Skyhawk Nose Gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Trumpeter 1/32 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This new Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the new Trumpeter 1/32 A-4 Skyhawk. The set is just the nose gear, wheel fork and the nose wheel. Its additional weight should be useful in helping the kit sit on its nose.

The parts are 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.
