I am trying to design a mechanism for operating the bomb bay doors on the VQ 110" B-24. So that I don't over-post to the main thread, I will keep the details here.

First of all, some background. A general thread on this plane can be found in Fuel Warbirds:

The post below has a drawing of where I am intending to put the gears to operate the door:

Someone else pointed out that this is pretty much how the full-scale operates. You can see them at 0:33 in this video:

I posted some notes about starting the design here:

OK, so now thatís a summary of everything before I started this blog. I will continue updates here.

NOTE : There is more....you have to click on either the title or "comments" to get the rest of this build log.
