SET: Scale Aircraft Conversions  72006: C-46 Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Williams Bros kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

The last of the recent batch of nice metal landing gear is this set for the Williams 1/72 C-46. Scale Aircraft Conversions has done their usual superlative job of molding this set. It includes the main landing gear with the various struts associated with that and a set of oleo Scissors. A one piece tail wheel and strut is also included. These are direct replacements for the kit parts so no instructions are needed. As you can see from the image, the casting is top notch.

The gear is quite sturdy and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them.  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.
