Scale Aircraft Conversions 48136:TBF/TBM Avenger Landing Gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Hobby Boss 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

Though the Hobby Boss 1/48 Avenger has been out for a few years now, Scale Aircraft Conversions has gotten around to providing a new gear set for it. This set includes both of the very long main landing gear legs, a set of oleo scissors and a new tail gear assembly with the molded on tail wheel.

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.
