Scale Aircraft Conversions 72027: B-52  landing gear
PRICE: $21.95 MSRP
FOR: Monogram 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

The next new set from Scale Aircraft Conversions is for the very large Monogram B-52 Stratofortress. This is good timing as the 'Young Astronauts' boxing with the X-15 is scheduled to be released this year (2011). The set is a bit larger than usual due to the size of the four main gear castings. The set also includes the outrigger gear and tires, making it quite complete.

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.
