Accessory Review
This set is offered as a direct replacement for the kit parts, but with more detail and, where appropriate, correcting any errors. In this case you get new main oleo unit with intergrated linkage, separate retraction rams and a complete tailwheel unit.

Conclusion
We have always found these sets most useful, simply because they allow a degree of adjustment to get the wheels to sit squarely on the ground, which is something you just don’t get with plastic.
The whole range is distributed in the UK by Hannants, and our thanks to Scale Aircraft Conversions (www.scaleaircraftconversions.com) for the review sample.
