Help!
Landing gear Short C-23 Sherpa (Short 330)

Hello,

Im planning on a 1/10 scale model of the Short C-23 Sherpa (the military version of the Short 330) and I am desperately searching for some pictures or drawings of the main gear to construct a semi scale gear for my model.
I tried every term I could imagine, but I was not able to find any picture or drawing of the gear construction.
If anyone has something usefull for me, please let me know.
Many thanks!

Greetings,
Franz

It looks like the nose wheel fully retracts and the mains partially retract.

Google Images search on Short C-23 Sherpa

Hello,

yes, the nose gear is retracting 90 backwards, the main gear is retracting about 20 backwards. So far so good. But Im searching for drawings or photos of the construction of the legs which have a bend around the middle and a strut backwards up which contains the shock absorber because I cant find out how retracting works.

Greetings,
Franz

I considered something similar for the mains on a multi wheeled transport.

I was going to use something like a 'torque rod' axle, that rotated.
