Nose Gear Bay Doors

Post by mschuler »

I am having difficulty in understanding how the front portion of the doors fit.

The drawing shows that the hinges are at the fuselage/door bay edge. The nose gear linkage is below that level.

And, the triangular piece of nose gear door (affixed to the strut) fairs into the lower cowl such that it is about one inch below the cowl attachment to the frame.

The nose gear doors must flow into this piece smoothly. That is my conundrum. The drawing is not very clear on this or possibility I have yet to see the light!

Mike,

Not sure you ever got this resolved but I would have thought some photos would help. Can oblige if you message me.

Please post photos here for all to benefit from, as the Nose Gear Door is rather unusually absent from the rather excellent and comprehensive plans.

Mike, I think there are quite a lot of photos scattered over the forum so will send to your email address if you provide it to me.
