I had to glue in some 3/8" dowels w/ holes drilled in them to give the front struts some BEEF
It's only 1/8" balsa skin back there; I glued them in w/ Gorilla glue after wetting the dowels.
I had brass inserts w/ plates but I didn't need those, the 3/8 poplar dowels are fine for this.
I also did some work on the tail feathers I installed a removable hing for the top of the rudder.
And I also fit and drilled in a brass insert for my fiberglass tail piece counter sunk and screwed it on.
I finished the aft beaching gear and panted it, I like these wheels better than the front ones and maybe ordering 4 solid rubber ones for the front; they are getting flat.
They must not be rated for a plane this size .

HERE'S WHAT I'M DOING I COLOR CODE THE PLUG ENDS.
THE WING BOLT WILL PULL THE CONNECTORS TOGETHER.
THAT PART IS EASY: REMEMBERING WHAT THE
I DID A YEAR AGO IS THE PROBLEM. LOL
