Scale Aircraft Conversions 48128: A-37 Dragonfly Landing Gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Revell/Monogram, Encore 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

A kit that is a bit of 'off again; on again' is the Revell/Monogram 1/48 A-37 Dragonfly. When it is released, it sits on store shelves for a while with few buying it. Then all of a sudden it becomes in demand and flies out of the stores. It is in this latter 'in demand' mode right now and I see that Encore is going to be releasing it soon. Scale Aircraft Conversions has anticipated this and presents a metal gear set for it. Newly cast main gear mounts with retraction struts and a new nose gear  with retraction strut is in this new set.

The parts are 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.
