Scale Aircraft Conversions 48195:MiG-19 Farmer Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Trumpeter 1/48 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Trumpeter 1/48 MiG-19 kit, probably the best one on the market. The MiG-19 has not been served well in either scale, though many of us think it is a cool, though brutish looking aircraft. This set is a direct replacement for the kit parts and includes the main gear legs along with two retraction struts. As sometimes happens, one retraction strut had the end broken off in shipment. The set also includes a nose gear that has a two piece nose wheel fork.

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. These parts are a direct replacement for the kit items.

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