|FOR:||Tamiya 1/48 kit|
|REVIEWER:||Scott Van Aken|
Back to the jets for a bit with this nice set from Scale Aircraft Conversions. It is designed for the very nice but rarely seen built Tamiya 1/48 F4D Skyray. This one includes the two main landing gear struts with oleo scissors molded in place, a new nose landing gear with a separate oleo scissor and the two main gear retraction struts.
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 athttp://www.scaleaircraftconversions.com if your local hobby shop does not stock them.
Thanks to Scale Aircraft Conversions for the review set.
