New Review: Macchi 202

Recommended Posts

Product Image

Scale Aircraft Conversions specializes in white metal replacement parts. Its line of replacement landing gear has been expanded to include a set for the 1/48 Hasegawa Mc 202 (also Eduard "Folgore"), and at least for the main landing gear, it can be used with the Hasegawa/Italeri Mc.205 "Veltro" as well. Perhaps the tail wheel, but I'm not sure.

The set includes 5 parts with the following breakdown: two main landing gear struts,  actuator arms, and a tail wheel. The parts are finely molded in white metal. These parts are drop-in replacements for the plastic parts.

I should say that these parts are more than just drop-in replacements. Some of the white metal part would be comprised by the equivalent of several plastic parts, so you have an easier job of assembling the landing gear due to having fewer parts to deal with. In addition you don't have to deal with cleaning seam lines.
