Scale Aircraft Conversions 48140: F-15 Eagle  Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Academy 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This next new Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Academy 1/48  F-15 Eagle. I'm not sure if these are valid for their F-15E, though I think the main gear change is wider wheels. However, since Academy's Strike Eagle is nothing more than a gussied up F-15D, they should work just fine. This set is pretty basic with the main landing gear legs  and retraction struts. A nicely done nose gear leg is also included.

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.
