Scale Aircraft Conversions 48149: Spitfire XII/Seafire F.17 Landing Gear
PRICE: $13.95 MSRP
FOR: Airfix 1/48 kits
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This next new Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the very popular Airfix 1/48 Seafire F.17 and Spitfire XII kits. As you can see, the kit includes both types of tail wheel, one for the 17 and one for the 12, along with the main gear legs and the oleo scissors.

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.
