Scale Aircraft Conversions 48146: Super Etendard/Etendard IV P Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Heller kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This next new Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Heller 1/48 Super Etendard/Etendard IV. It is great to see metal bits being made for these older kits. This set has a nose gear leg, the nose wheel fork and the nose wheel retraction strut. The rest of the set are for the main gear with the main gear legs and three sets of retraction struts. Actually, I don't have the kit but perhaps two of those retraction struts may be for the speed brake.

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.
