Scale Aircraft Conversions | 1/32 TBF/TBM Avenger Landing Gear
Reviewed by Mark Proulx
Scale Aircraft Conversions continues to expand their product line of white metal landing gear. Their latest replacement set is for the Trumpeter TBF/TBM Avenger in 1/32nd scale.
Two new struts are provided for the main gear only. These white metal parts appear to be the exact copies of the landing gear provided by Trumpeter. They are nicely detailed with seam lines barely visible. Trumpeter provides smaller detail items such as torque links and tie down rings in the kit. They need to be added to the replacement landing gear as indicated with the kit instructions.
The large scale kits from Trumpeter are nicely done but can be very heavy when completed. Over time plastic landing gear is prone to breakage from excessive handling and the weight of the model. These new white metal parts from Scale Aircraft Conversions should provide greatly needed support for your Avenger and I recommend them without hesitation.
