The landing gear assemblies on WWI aircraft are notoriously fragile and spindly, and the Pfalz D.XII is no exception. SAC has provided us with four white metal parts that should solve that problem. Being white metal, they will require some careful polishing of the surface to get them smooth, and gap filling CA glue must be used for assembly. The parts come in the typical SAC clear plastic bubble card.

The SAC parts represent kit parts A9, A11, A25 and B8. The only drawback, if you can call it that, was that both of the struts were somewhat bent. Sometimes straightening thin white metal parts can be a little tedious, but it can be done. Having white metal at the attachment points is definitely an advantage provided by this set.

My thanks to Scale Aircraft Conversions and IPMS for the review sample.
