New Review: I-16 Type 24/28 Landing Gear (ICM/Rev/Has)

Recommended Posts

This is the Scale Aircraft Conversions (SAC) white metal landing gear replacement option for the 1/32 I-16 type 24/28 (ICM/Rev/Has) kits. If you have built in 1/32 scale you may have wondered at some point if the kit provided plastic landing gear will adequately support the model's weight. These SAC items are primarily intended to address strength concerns, but there are two other advantages to using white metal landing gear: You can very slightly bend the main strut into perfect alignment once installed, and oleos (if applicable) can be fine sanded to a very shiny and realistic finish - no need for applying bare metal foil or painting oleos if you're working with white metal.

Observations

These I-16 landing gear pieces match very closely the kit molds. Clean up is minimal.
