Scale Aircraft Conversions 48135:Ta-152 Landing Gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Hobby Boss 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This new Scale Aircraft Conversions set would have been handy a few weeks back when I built the new Hobby Boss 1/48 Ta-152C-0 kit. This one includes both main gear legs along with the retraction struts. A tail wheel gear and strut is also included. I'm guessing that a long wing Ta-152H is coming from Hobby Boss and this will be just right for that one as well.

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.
