These are the Fury struts on the Air Blue gear, with brakes and V-Lite wheels. You will need to cut 3/8" off the mains and the nose strut fits as-is. If you go this route, cut the nose door opening 1/8" longer (in the front) than marked to leave room for the fact the nose gear is anged 5 degrees forward. It fits using the standard cut out but the nose strut does press against the hinge, a 1/8" larger opening (length) would be perfect... ;-)
