Hello all,
Moving towards the completion of the landing gear and the engines. The tail wheel needed modification so I laminated each to a 1mm board by the wheel only to widen the wheel, and then put both of those onto another 1mm board for strength for the strut itself as well as widen the tyre. Not entirely sure how best to attach it with a robust joint. I’m thinking to cut a rectangular hole large enough to fit the white tabs you see. Then fit 2 little right angled brackets inside it and then push the white tabs through gluing them to the brackets. That way all the weight is not on the tiny surface area of the fuselage skin and the side of the white tabs.

I’ve started on the spinners and props. With the spinners, I rolled them using a rod as tight as I could then sanded the end of a straightened paperclip to ‘key’ its surface before applying UHU and fitting to the inside end of the spinner part. I didn’t think Kittifix paper glue hold when I use it to torsion the spinner from the inside. Sounds complicated doesn’t it?! We’ll find out this evening when I go back to it!

Regards,
Alan
