Scale Aircraft Conversions 72047: Wellington Landing Gear
PRICE: $15.95 MSRP
FOR: Trumpeter 1/72 Kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the Trumpeter 1/72 Wellington. Trumpeter does, I believe, several Wellies in this scale and this set will fit them all. The main pieces are the main legs for the main gear. There are also a set of rather complex retraction struts for each main gear as well as a pair of smaller pieces, making for a rather complex looking arrangement. The set also includes a tail wheel and strut molded as a single piece. These are direct replacements for the kit parts.

The gear is quite sturdy, and all one needs to do is clean up the mold seams, paint things and install them. As is the norm, some of the pieces are a tad bent, but will straighten up quite easily.

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