Scale Aircraft Conversions 48188: Tu-2 Landing Gear
PRICE: $17.95 MSRP
FOR: Xuntong 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the recent Xuntong 1/48 Tu-2. This is a kit I have not seen, but has had some positive things said about it. This set consists of the two main gear legs, oleo scissors and retraction struts. There is also a tail gear and a couple of joined X strut gizmos of which I have no idea where they go! These are a direct replacement 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.
