Scale Aircraft Conversions 48133: Staggerwing Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Roden 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This next new Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the equally new Roden 1/48 Beech Staggerwing. What you get with this oe are the two main forks for the landing gear as well as a new tail wheel assembly. In case you are wondering, the shorter forks fit in the front with the longer ones being basically the retraction struts.

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.
