Scale Aircraft Conversions 48121: Me-262A-1a/U4 landing gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Hobby Boss 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

Moving to new 1/48 sets, Scale Aircraft Conversions has provided this set for the new Hobby Boss 1/48 Me-262A-1A/U4. This is a pretty straight-forward set with a new nose leg, new nose gear retraction strut, two new main gear legs with the gear door attachment brace, and two new oleo scissors.

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.
