I decided to get started on the main landing gear. First, I cut out the access area leaving an border area to attach the gear door panel (after I cut and set up the gear doors). I've decided to go the full gear door route as it is just too cool to pass up.

Getting them set up will be a future task for the moment I ordered a sequencer and still need to order door rams. I had to cut out some wood to get the retracts to fit properly, notice the mark on the former where it had to be cut, and the the picuture showing why it needed to be cut as well as the fit after the cut.

The flex plates also had to have the forward and rear edges sanded a little to get them to fit. IT is nice for everything to be snug and all it took was a little bit if fine sanding. I've epoxied the beechwood landing gear rails in place and will wait until tomorrow to let them set up before doing any more work.

Maybe tomorrow I can finish up mounting the screwing down the flex plates, and the retracts, right now they are just set in place for checking the fit.


I got the tailplane servo installed and the servo cover on also. I took some hardwood and used a scroll saw to make some mounting rails and mounted them inside the tailplane. I broke the bottom tabs off the servo and use the top tabs to mount the servo to the mounting rail with the screws provided with the servo.[/QUOTE]
