Hi Herb

hard to cut up that beautiful glass work
From my experience, it'll be even harder to get the 602s into an 8.5% thick RG14 wing. My slightly bigger (44" span) MiG 15 needed the root section at 13% and tip at 10% to get the gear in. It worked out that those were around the scale thicknesses too.
My installation had the main gear units swept forward 17deg in plan view, and swept back 17deg in the side view, almost the same angles as the full size. At any other orientation the wheels won't retract fully into the wing root.

An alternative setup might be to fit the mains into scale drop tanks.

It's gonna be a measure ten times cut once operation
