Wheel Well

The scale wheel size is 60mm or about 2.5". I used a Sullivan Skylite. The axle is 5/32".
The radius of the wheel well was smoothed out to 3" using a sanding drum; the depth was bare minimum after all was done.

I thought the wheel well area was a bit weak, especially the liteply sides. There is going to be some stress on a small wheel and single axle from an 8-10 pound sailplane when the landing is hard. So I will be using 1/8" birch ply to beef up this area.
