Thanks once again for another great set from SAC, and thanks to John and Phil for sending it out for review.

Recommended Kits:

  • Heller 1/72 T-6 Texan and any other companies that have released the kit under license such as Encore

The review item is the typical high standard and normal from SAC; a direct replacement for the kit items except these are cast metal. Consisting of sets of two main gear and one tail gear, there is not much to describe except to remove the parts from the pour runners with side nippers, use flat 220 wet/dry to prepare the cut stub, then install the gear on the model.

No instructions are provided, nor are any required. The gear themselves are excellent castings, and rarely require much preparation for installation. Some people gently polish the gear beforehand, to provide a realistic sheen only capable in this medium. Be aware, however, that all metals will corrode so some extent, so a light clear coat or primer painting before installation are warranted.

This landing gear set is highly recommended for its superior quality, ease of incorporation , and the security it provides in the form of much improved strength for the gear on the display setting. Thanks to SAC for the opportunity to review this product!
