FirstLook

 

This set of parts comes in a clear bubble pack with a card backing. No instructions are given but the bits will just replace the relevant kit parts. Cast in white metal and designed for the Hasegawa kit, this is a five piece set of rigid parts to strengthen the undercart of your model, especially if you have loaded it up with resin and PE material that could over-stress the plastic parts. I presume that these parts will be usable for any of the other Avenger kits with minimal modification.

 

 

The parts are very cleanly cast with barely a trace of a seam to clean up. The main pieces have a small casting block to remove, while the retraction jacks are surrounded by a large rectangular ‘sprue’ to protect them. Details are sharp and well-defined.

This set comes recommended for those of you who build any of the Avenger kits, but don’t forget to prime the part with a metal primer.

Thanks to Scale Aircraft Conversions for the sample.
