Scale Aircraft Conversions 72010: B-25 landing gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Hasegawa 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This set is designed for the Hasegawa 1/72 B-25 Mitchell kit. As with the previously reviewed B-24 set, Scale Aircraft Conversions has included some interior bits. This consists of the cockpit and some other nose interior bits. Adding these is a real plus as it helps provide some weight to make it easier to keep this one from tail sitting. I'm sure these parts are not enough on their own, but it does help.

For the gear part, the set includes a new nose gear, main gear and nose wheel section.  As with others in the series, these are direct replacements for the kit parts, making installation quite easy.

The gear is quite well cast and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them in place as they are direct replacements for the kit parts. It is not uncommon for cast metal bits to be a bit bent but some careful straightening out will bring them into line once again.

You can order these direct at if your local hobby shop does not stock them.
