Scale Aircraft Conversions 72048: T-33A Landing Gear
PRICE: $12.95 MSRP
FOR: Platz or Sword 1/72 kit
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Cast Metal

This Scale Aircraft Conversions set is for the recent Platz 1/72 T-33 Shooting Star. It will probably also fit the Sword kit and perhaps even the Hasegawa or Heller kits if you should have those in your collection. This is a direct replacement for kits parts and includes a new nose gear, nose gear retraction strut, taxi light and light mount (or perhaps it is the nose wheel steering). Main gear legs and new nose and main wheels are also part of the set.

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.
