FirstLook

 

Aerocraft Models has released three undercarriage upgrade sets for 1/32 scale ICM and Revell kits. These are brass cast undercarriage legs.

 

 

They are:

  • Main Undercarriage Struts for Polikarpov I-153

  • Main Undercarriage Struts for Polikarpov I-16

  • Eurofighter Typhoon Nose Wheel Undercarriage Strut

 

 

Casting on my samples displays no imperfections and detail on each is nicely done. The brass is very strong and will easily hold up a heavy 1/32 scale model.

 

 

There is virtually no cleanup or preparation required to use these. Each leg is cast as a single part so you don't have to worry about delicate links or uncertain alignment between the plastic kit parts. They should just drop in place.

 

 

Conclusion

 

These lost-wax brass castings will be a luxurious finishing touch for your 1/32 scale ICM/Revell Polikarpovs and Revell Eurofighter Typhoon.

Thanks to Aerocraft Models for the sample.
