    Retractable landing gear revisited
    Ennobee
    My latest project involved some metalworking. The plan was to build a toy plane that looks like a DC-3 (or C-47, or Dakota...) with a retractable landing gear. Looking through some drawings of the real DC-3, I found that the gear retracted forwards into a wheel well just aft of the engine, so I had...
