Exclamation Belly pan

The actual Skyhawk had complete assemble wing that was then mated to the fuselage which during assembly was lowered onto the wing assembly. There is no left or right wing, it is one assembly.


Yoave decided to have the wings separated to left and right, then mated to the framing spars and finally, add a belly pan or covering. The outcome for the model is the same regardless of the process of getting there.


So for this model, here is the belly pan location

the pan itself

and glued on.

wing is done short of slats.

Exclamation Wing landing gear housing and doors

As I stated earlier, the Skyhawk's main gear was attached to the lower wing , but not inside. The struts had their own fairing and the gear swung forward during the retraction. Only the main wheel was stored in the wing bay.


The fairing ( canoe like shape ) wing frame is pre drilled to position the gear struts

here are the parts of the fairing
A-4 Skyhawk- Yoav in 1/30 scale-img_4878.jpg


glue in place. Note that the red outline is hand marked. On the real aircraft it is there as a safety marker so you don't bang your head and face on those edges.

Exclamation Main wheel doors

Here are the doors. Since the original has no wheels, the doors are a combination of the wing door part, the housing external and a poor cut and paste inner section from Zarkov A-4N.

However...

the real doors had bulges externally to clear the struts and wheels.

I took the easy way here and only added the external fairing on the door without the inner section bulged out.




here is a set of pics showing the doors in a closed position

Isaac,


That's a lot of work and detailing on the landing gear and wheel wells. It's well worth it. Nice job.

Cool Landing gear

The landing gear parts are taken from Zarkov's A-4N Skyhawk. Slight elongation is needed.

The wheels are my style of laminated card stock that is turned and shaped to size.

Cool Arresting hook

I used a wood dowel and wrapped the thinly printed part to represent the hook
