Scale Aircraft Conversions 48162: OS2U Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Monogram 1/48 Kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This particular set is designed for the recently reissued Monogram OS2U Kingfisher. This set includes both the land and floatplane gear. For the landplane version we have a new main gear assembly with the appropriate smaller tail wheel. For the floatplane, we have the beaching gear which consists of the two A frame pieces, a cross brace and two struts with a tail wheel piece that fits on the back of the float. This is a direct replacement for the kit parts and adds some heft to things.

The gear is quite sturdy and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them. As you can see from the image, the casting is first rate.

You can order these direct at if your local hobby shop or favorite on-line retailer does not stock them.
