Nose Gear part 2

Posted on Updated on

Mounting the nose gear to the fuselage requires some reinforcement to the fuselage. I started by cutting a piece of RS-10 to fit where the gear will mount and gluing it in place.

Next I cut a 1/8″ piece of plywood to make a gusset and glued it in place.

I did not like the seam between the existing and new gusset so I decided to put a RS-535 gusset to tie it all together.

Next I need to make some aluminum angle brackets that will be bolted to this reinforced area to support a couple of C channel parts.
