Scale Aircraft Conversions 48163: SBD Landing Gear
FOR: Accurate Miniatures 1/48 Kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This is a pretty basic gear set. It is designed for the Accurate Miniatures 1/48 SBD Dauntless. It simply consists of the two main landing gear. As you can see, the brake lines are molded in with the gear, which is a nice touch. 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.
