First Look

Scale Aircraft Conversions (SAC) produces an impressive array of white metal replacement landing gear for a variety of models. Some of these sets correct different issues that appeared in production kits, while others are simple common sense replacements to have stronger landing gear on your model.

B-29 Superfortress Landing Gear

This release is targeted for the Academy 1/72 B-29 Superfortress kits. This set is a drop-in replacement for the kit's gear, though cast in white metal to provide stronger legs for your kit to stand upon. The large size of the Academy kit and those thin struts in styrene make for a landing gear failure waiting to happen.

The set includes the two main gear struts assemblies and their retraction arms, as well as the nose gear strut. This set will work with any of the Academy releases of their Superfortress kit.

You can obtain SAC landing gear from your favorite hobby retailer or online hobby shop. If your retailer can't get these for you and you can't this set at your favorite online retailer, then you can get quick service from Scale Aircraft Conversions directly.

My sincere thanks to Scale Aircraft Conversions for this review sample!
