Scale Aircraft Conversions 32059: P-51 Landing Gear
PRICE: $21.95 MSRP
FOR: Trumpeter 1/32 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This new set from Scale Aircraft Conversions is for the 1/32 Trumpeter P-51. This is as much an upgrade set as a replacement set as it includes corrected cast metal brake lines as well as the hangers for them. You get the usual main gear legs, corrected main gear doors, corrected main wheels with diamond tread pattern, tail gear and tail wheel as well. A set of instructions for the installation of the hangers and lines is included.

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.
