Scale Aircraft Conversions 48185:
IL-2 Shturmovik Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Tamiya 1/48 Kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the new Tamiya 1/48 IL-2 Shturmovik. The set includes all the bits for the main landing gear  which include both main gear struts/retraction struts as well as smaller items that fit on the gear. A new tail strut with wheel and oleo scissor are also included. 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 is the norm, some of the pieces are a tad bent, but will straighten up quite easily.

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