Scale Aircraft Conversions 72032: Lancaster Landing Gear
PRICE: $16.95 MSRP
FOR: Revell 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

Scale Aircraft Conversions has gotten around to providing a new gear set for the very nicely done Revell 1/72 Lancaster. This set has what looks like a lot of struts, but you have the main struts, a set of thinner struts to keep the gear down and locked and a third set that are the retraction struts themselves. The set also includes a new tail wheel strut.

The parts are 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.
