Product Article by Steve Bamford on July 25 2018



This metal landing gear set from Scale Aircraft Conversions features a set of landing gear for the A-1 Skyraider from Trumpeter.  

These landing gear are cast from metal and include the main gear legs as well as the tail wheel landing gear leg.  The level of detail is exceptional and the casting quality is excellent.  

The trumpeter kit part renders the retraction arms as one 'shape' cast as part of the main gear. This set has two separate arms for each main gear. The photo shows one assembled main and one in pieces. 

These landing gear will give you added strength as well as added detail. 

You can purchase this and other landing gear sets for a variety of aircraft and scales for many, many different models directly from Scale Aircraft Conversions.
