Landing Gear, Brakes and Wheels

Gear sockets molded at the start of the construction of the landing gear are shaped and mounted in place in the gear bulkhead to insure stable positioning of the main gear as it locks over center. The toe-in of the wheels has to be set as precisely as posssibly to prevent the plane from trying to veer to one side or the other. The bolts at the axles are shimmed with very thin washers or sliver of metal shim stock. The tiniest thickness makes a big difference in the angle projected forward from the rims of the wheels. The brakes and wheel rims are safety wired into place and shown in final assembly.
