Scale Aircraft Conversions 48178: Ta-154  Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: ProModeler/Dragon 1/48 Kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Hasegawa 1/48 TA-154 'Moskito', a kit that I believe was also repackaged by Pro Modeler. This aircraft has some pretty complex landing gear that includes not only the main gear struts, but rather large retraction struts and a pair of ancillary struts. The nose gear has two major sections with an extended oleo and a large retraction strut. The 154 sits very nose high and it was quite normal for the nose strut to be nearly fully extended. These are direct replacements for the kit parts.

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.
