Scale Aircraft Conversions 48192: F2A Buffalo Landing Gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Special Hobby 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the rather recent Special Hobby 1/48 F2A Buffalo,This set has a pair of very beefy main gear legs with their attached retraction struts. It also includes a complete tail wheel assembly. As an addition to this set. it includes a pair of barrier guards (the longer items) which are used on the USN versaions. Also included are a pair of uplock roller brackets, something not found in the kits. These bits are replacements and additions to 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.
