Scale Aircraft Conversions 48113: Buccaneer landing gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Airfix 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

The next set of beefy metal gear from Scale Aircraft Conversions is this set for the Airfix 1/48 Bucanneer. It is a very straight-forward set with a pair of main gear legs and a nose gear leg. One will need to carefully spread the forks to insert the wheels, but that is the norm for these sorts of things and will be easy to do. 

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.
