Focke-Wulf FW-200 ''Condor'' ModelCard 032

Hi, everybody!
I have started to build this model four months ago.
The scaning pages reduced to A4 size. As a result the scale is approximately 1:50 instead of 1:33.

Nice work, I like the way you have accurately positioned the landing gear struts in a straight and true way. When I try to solder such components, they always move a bit and come out crooked.
By the way, is there anybody who understands the geometry of the retracting mechanism of these gears? What strut moves around what and how is it retracted into the engine nacelle? Any enlightment would be greatly appreciated.
greetings

About Condor's landing gear

To scon10: You are absolutely right - the retracting mechanism is very complicated. I have found only these two pictures:

Hi kav
Very nice plane! :D
Are you going to build the same from Modelik?

P.S. I saw one more civil plane hanged up to the ceiling. Is that IL-62?
