Just a small update. I have a few pictures but I'll post them when I have more to show. I managed to solder together the landing gear wire. I'm not very good at soldering, so I used some copper wire wrap to help hold things together. The soldering isn't pretty but it'll do and I think I should be able to hide it when I add some wood bits to finish it off. I also glued is some small plywood hard points to the fuselage for mounting the gear, though I don't have the plastic gear mounts I thought I had so I guess those will be added to my hardware order. I had thought about soldering some metal stubs to the music wire to screw through, but I don't trust my soldering skills to make something that would hold.

More later.
