Scale Aircraft Conversions 72040: RQ-4B Landing Gear
PRICE: $12.95 MSRP
FOR: Platz 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This latest Scale Aircraft Conversions set is designed for the Platz 1/72 RQ-4 Global Hawk. Apparently MRC is reboxing this kit as the packet lists that as well. The set includes main landing gear, two retraction struts and a nose gear with integrated wheel/tire.  This is a direct replacement for the kit parts and adds some heft to things.

The gear is quite sturdy and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them. Sometimes thin items will get bent in shipment, but they are simple to straighten back out. As you can see from the image, the casting is first rate.

You can order these direct at if your local hobby shop or favorite on-line retailer does not stock them.
