Scale Aircraft Conversions 32055: Bf-109 Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Dragon/Cyber-hobby 1/32 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This new Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Dragon/cyber-hobby 1/32 Bf-109 kit. As of yet, only the 109E has been released but if  earlier variants make it into plastic, I'm betting this set will fit those too. It would not be appropriate for later versions because of the boots over the oleos. The 109 is a rather simple aircraft and this set included the two main gear legs, separate oleo scissors and the tail wheel strut.

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.
