Scale Aircraft Conversions 72043: Halifax  Landing Gear
PRICE: $18.95 MSRP
FOR: New Revell 1/72 Kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the new Revell 1/72 Halifax. As you can see, this is a rather complex set that appears to include the inside of the wheel wells as major components. There are the sturdy main gear pieces as well as retraction struts and what look to be some sort of mud guard. Wish I could tell you more, but I do not have the kit. There is also a tail wheel strut and tail wheel fork.

The gear is quite sturdy, and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them. 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.
