Scale Aircraft Conversions 72023: C-47/DC-3 landing gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Revell/Italeri 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions 1/72 landing gear set is for one of the more iconic aircraft, the DC-3 and its C-47 military variant. The set shown is one of the more common variations of the landing gear (apparently there are several) and is designed for the Italeri kit, a kit that has been reboxed by Revell so you may find it in that packaging. The set itself continas two main landing gear strut assemblies with retraction strut and a tail wheel assembly.

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.
