Scale Aircraft Conversions 72026: PB4Y-2  landing gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: Revell/Matchbox 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

The next new set from Scale Aircraft Conversions begins some 1/72 sets. This one is specifically for the Matchbox PB4Y-2 Privateer that you'll also find in a Revell box. The set includes a new pair of main gear struts and the very short nose gear strut.

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.
