Scale Aircraft Conversions 72036: CL-415 Landing Gear
PRICE: $12.95 MSRP
FOR: Heller 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal.

This next new Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Heller 1/72 CL-415 waterbomber. This somewhat complex set includes both main gear struts, but the large retraction struts and some bits that look like covers. The nose gear and its retraction strut is also included. Now I am not positive, but this set may well fit the Heller CL-215, which is basically the same plane but powered by recips instead of turboprops.

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.
