This is an attempt to make the landing gear
It's made from reinforced mat board
The steps have been added
Foot pad underway
Almost ready to be cast in resin
Rubber mold made
Resin casting
Hinge pin on lower step
Connected to strut
One landing gear hole cut out
Fitting landing gear
Gear well and steps
Foot pad sliding door
Three stages of closure
Hinges on top of steps
As this is not motorized there's a small pin hole to open and close the pad door using a paper clip
There's only ...
... two left to make
The parts are redied for the next two pieces
The doors for the upper landing gear well
The piece of string in the photo above this was used to make the pseudo spring above the foot pad
Thanks to a 60 degree day in January I got four landing gear well pieces primed
