SET: Scale Aircraft Conversions 48055: B-25 Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Monogram/Revell kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This particular set is for the very popular Monogram/Revell B-25 Mitchell. I should mention that it won't fit the very old B-25B/C that Revell did on their own, but the Monogram B-25H/J kit that has the upper turret in the forward position. The set includes a new set of main gear legs and a new metal nose gear leg. Like all SAC castings, it  is a direct replacement for the kit items.

The gear is quite sturdy and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them. As you can see from the image, the casting is first rate. Don't sweat getting thinner bits that might get a bit bent in shipping. By slowly working them back into position, they are as good as new. It is one of the realities of cast white metal that we all come across.

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