Main landing gear inner doors

I elected to use these metal offset hinges I got from Dreamworks. The hinge pins are held in by small set screws

Rough layout of gear door parts to see if locations will clear all the other parts

Servo below wheel is OK and hinges clear wheel in intake duct

HInge locations selected and marked

Inside edges marked for material removal to allow inside hinge half to fold under the outer skin

Small perma grit cutter used to rough out the hinge cutout

Permagrit flat file used to square the cut

Foam material removed under cut out to allow the inside hinge half to lay almost flat against the outer skin

HInges centered in the cut out

HInge alignment wire has to be at the outside edge of wing skin to allow door to swing over the curved surface
