The Trumpeter helicopters are really nice kits but the kit’s white metal landing gear are very fragile. They are brittle and break apart. I’ve had this issue with the CH-47D and Mi-8 kit landing gear. Scale Aircraft Conversions offers a replacement set of white metal landing gear for the Hip.

This set includes nine white metal parts for the landing gear. They are direct replacements for the kit landing gear. They are packaged in a cardboard backed blister pack. The detail is nicely represented and should prove no problem for adding them to the kit.

They are not brittle like the kit parts. Some parts will need straightening as they got slightly bent during shipping.

These are a nice addition and stronger than the kit landing gear. These are a perfect replacement for the brittle kit white metal landing gear. This is another great release from Scale Aircraft Conversions. I hope that they make landing gear for the CH-47A and D.

Highly recommended

Thanks to Scale Aircraft Conversions and IPMS/USA for the review copy. You can obtain yours by contacting SAC at or at your local hobby shop or online retailer.
