Any tips one how to get the wire gear fitted into the fuselage other than brute force?
How tight it it? Is it just snug and you can still push it in or is it so tight you have to force it in? I would check to make sure the is no debree in the opening such as glue or epoxy or some covering. If there is nothing blocking it try lightly samnding the wood so you can them slip in the grear and epoxy it.
