1:12 landing gear plan

Hi, I've been looking at your scale landing gear for the dc-3. They are amazing!!

I'm interested in the computer drawings of the dc-3 landing gear. I'd like to get them for 1:12 scale. Is there any way you can resize the computer drawings for 1:12 scale (96" wingspan). I'm building the tony Lombardo dc-3. Although would you recommend I build from zeroli plans instead?

And then make it downloadable. I can pay with PayPal. What is the method for operation. Is it a servo?

Cheers, rich

Hi Rich,
PM sent.
Please be aware, that resizing the drawings is a work, which is not realizable with a few mouseclicks.
My plans fit to the Ziroli DC-3 scale well, and people, who build a Ziroli DC-3, have my CD often. Nonetheless, it is Your decision, to built a Lombardo or Ziroli scale. IMHO with increasing the scale, it is not necessary to go to every detail on the landing gear and vice versa.
My retracts are operated by a DC motor , which drives the motion screw. The engine is ESC controlled, what allows you to set appropriate (Scale) speeds.
