Scale Aircraft Conversions 48154: P-61 Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Great Wall Hobby 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This next new Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the new Great Wall Hobby 1/48 P-61 Black Widow. This is a rather complex set and each of the gear legs is a three part construct. On this review set, one of the main gear braces is broken, the first time I have run across this. However, it is a clean break and easy to fix. I am sure SAC will replace it if asked. The nose gear is quite sturdy and includes 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, especially one like this with such large and long parts, 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.
