Scale Aircraft Conversions 48080: Su-27 Flanker landing gear
PRICE: $18.95 MSRP
FOR: Academy Boss 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This set is designed for the Academy 1/48 Su-27 Flanker kit. This is a rather complex set that includes not only the nose gear and all the various retraction struts an dnose wheel steering unit, but it alsocomes with replacement main wheels and nose whee. This makes for a most complete set. I'm sure this set will fit the various Academy knock-offs that have been produced in China over the years. As with others in the series, these are direct replacements for the kit parts, making installation quite easy.

The gear is 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.
