I think what dcoquelet means he that he used a scaled down version of an existing landing gears from a different model of the same aircraft. Like using the landing gear from Canon's A-340 model on Bruno's A-330/A340 (fictional example). So he can't make that landing gear available since it's not his design.

markings are extraordinary and fascinating. After much googling, I added the
undercarriages as I like planes on the ground better.

I really want to build this now! What type of paper do you use? Since these are small, i use regular copy paper.this is my regular fedex a300 in 1/300 and my air france a300 awaiting engines in 1/600.

Seeing all these models with gear made me want to do one but what do you put in the front so it doesnt break the gear but keeps it down?

Well done, croden. I use regular printing paper 70 to 80 gsm weight. I print double and glue
them together to make it sturdy. To avoid tail-sitting problem, I add weight to the nose
section, anything that weighs and wrapped up in toilet tissue paper. Then let it be glued to
the inside of the nose section.

A330- Emirates

here it is completely done. on ground & on stand..
I use 160g/mē paper for all the A/C parts to maximum prevent the parts to buckle
Landing Gear Wheels and Door Panel are printed on 80g/mē then the wheels are glued on 1mm thick cardboard to achieve real wheel thickness, other parts like L.G door panel are glued on 0,5mm thick cardboard.. Of course you need to weight the inside of nose part to avoid the tail sitting or extreme take off incidence angle.. for this i use UHU PataFix (like chewim Gum..!)
For the Landing Gears struts i use 1mm Diam thin metal wire, recovered with the strut template when it exists..then i drill carefully the intrados wing and the under nose fuselage section to glue the wheels strut.. such as to be structurally tightened as a cantilever beam
The next one A/C i'm going to start is may be the Sud Aviation Caravelle III, or one of the A340..

Thanks everyone for sharing the model builds (and undercarriages when possible).

Since I have already my "own" thread, I will not intervene often on this one, but I'll surely keep an interested eye on it.
