Scale Aircraft Conversions 48124: FW-189 landing gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Great Wall 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

The next new set from Scale Aircraft Conversions is a rather nice one for the new Great Wall 1/48 FW-189, also called 'Uhu'. This one is one of the simpler to use as it has the right and left side of the main strut with the separate retraction strut that fit in between them. The inclusion of the tail gear with molded in tail wheel completes the set.

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.
