Like most modelers, I have had my share of problems with aircraft landing gear. It’s to the point that I almost expect a strut to break whenever I take a model out to display. That’s why the idea of metal replacement landing gear intrigued me enough to shell out the money for a set on my latest project – an Eduard P-39 kit.
The main supplier of metal landing gear is Scale Aircraft Conversions, a Texas company that has an impressive catalog of replacement landing gear parts for many of the best-selling kits on the market today. Their logo is designed to remind you of the old Strategic Air Command shield from cold war bombers (SAC, get it!).
