SET: Scale Aircraft Conversions  72004: B-36 Landing Gear
PRICE: $18.95 MSRP
FOR: Monogram or Revell kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This particular set is for the huge Monogram B-36, which you will also find in Revell boxes. As you might imagine, this is one of the largest strut sets I've seen from Scale Aircraft Conversions and it should have no trouble holding up this gigantic 1/72 scale kit. This set includes nose gear and main gear struts.  These are direct replacements for the kit parts so no instructions are needed.

The gear is quite sturdy and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them. As you can see from the image, the casting is first rate. Don't sweat getting thinner bits that might get a bit bent in shipping. By slowly working them back into position, they are as good as new. It is one of the realities of cast white metal that we all come across.

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