Bottom nacelle formers take some time to line up so planking will flow around the wheels and gear doors will look scale

I use two 1/8" balsa strips on the bottom centerline, so gear doors will be easy to part after the planking is finished. Only glue them together in the area where they won't be gear doors

The bulkhead just in front of the tires needs to be 1/8" aircraft ply, because it anchors the top of the gear door cylinders and will be the forward surface of the front gear door seam
