Scale Aircraft Conversions 48145: F4U Corsair Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Tamiya kit (all versions)
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This next new Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Tamiya 1/48 F4U Corsair. The set is rather complete as things go. In addition to the main gear struts, main retraction struts and the tail gear with hook, there are two tail wheels. Someone will have to remind me why there are two. Not only that but there are the wing fold pieces and the wing brace 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.
