Scale Aircraft Conversions 48191: P-38 Landing Gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Academy 1/48 kit. This has also be reboxed by Eduard
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Academy 1/48 P-38 Lightning. This kit has also be reboxed by Eduard at a considerably higher SRP. The set includes both of the main landing gear and the nose gear. Includes are the nose gear retraction strut and the two main gear retraction struts as well. These latter items are on metal sprues to help prevent shipment damage. 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 thin pieces may be 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.
