Scale Aircraft Conversions 72029: B-17G landing gear
PRICE: $14.95 MSRP
FOR: New tool Revell 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

The last new 1/72 set from Scale Aircraft Conversions is for the new tool Revell 1/72 B-17G Flying Fortress. The set is typical with a new pair of main landing struts with new retraction struts and a new tail wheel 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, especially if the casting is long and skinny, 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.
