Scale Aircraft Conversions 48137: FW-190 Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Eduard 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This next new Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Eduard FW-190 in 1/48 scale. Thanks to all 190 gear being the same, this can be used on any of their 190A and 190D kits, and there are quite a few of these. For the main gear, you get new main strut legs, new oleo scissors and new retraction struts. The rather complex tail gear assembly is also very nicely done with a separate wheel fork and 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.
