Scale Aircraft Conversions 48125: Sea Vixen landing gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Airfix 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

The next new set from Scale Aircraft Conversions is one for the rather popular Airfix 1/48 Sea Vixen. The set includes the main gear as a single piece with smaller retraction struts. Nose gear is a somewhat complex construct with the upper gear leg and two lower halves that hold the nose wheel.

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.
