Scale Aircraft Conversions 48170: F-86 Sabre  Landing Gear
PRICE: $11.95 MSRP
FOR: Academy 1/48 Kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Academy 1/48 F-86 Sabre, a kit that many think is the best one in this scale on the market. It is a pretty basic set that includes a new nose gear and two new main landing gear struts.

These are direct replacements for the kit items. Some of the thin bits will need gentle straightening, but that is normal for the medium used. 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.
