SET: Scale Aircraft Conversions 48063: Ar-234C Landing Gear
PRICE: $18.95 MSRP
FOR: Revell/Hasegawa kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This may very much seem the same set as that for the Ar-234B, however, since the C model was heavier than the B version, the landing gear were a bit beefier and so the gear are not totally interchangeable. Again, this is for the Hasegawa kit that has been reboxed by Revell AG. Scale Aircraft Conversions set is quite comprehensive included both main gears, retraction struts, oleo scissors, nose gear leg and nose gear retraction strut. These are direct replacements for the kit parts so no instructions are needed.

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.
