Default F-104 Landing Gear

Anyone know of any documentation out there in regards to some drawing of the F-104 LG?

Regards,

Gregory

The landing gear for the F-104 formed the basis for the gear on the F-16s. They were trying to use off the shelf parts wherever to cut costs. They would be a good place to start. There are many pictures of the F-16 lg on the web. Good luck with your project, please post some pictures.

If you are thinking of eventially going to model, I think there is only one maker of near scale retracting gear for the 104.

Sort of limits your options then.

This is the best layout I have seen, was from a 1/5 scale version built in Germany about 3 years ago.

I think Century Jet used to make the retractable gear for the F-104. They had such on display at Pasadena years ago.

I have found enough information now and will start CAD'ing some designs up, these are not for a standard size version so will need to be custom.Thanks for the replies.

Gregory

Philip Avonds supplies a near scale set of landing gear for his F104 kit. SEE [link=http://www.avonds.com/]CLICKY[/link]

There are some good pics there too.

Mine has the non scale Springairs but I have seen the scale gear and it seems to work well and be reasonably robust.

I know all the old manufacturers and there stuff is ok, but again this is for a large scale scratch built version. 1/4 scale will be using a AMTTitan. Doing it all now in SolidWorks then will get the plug cnc'd out and make a mold of it.

Gregory

If the pic whith the very detailed landinggear was of Heiko Höft or Wolfgang Weber it was in 1/4 not 1/5! I think i have read about them crashing, maybe the gear is for sale!

Thanks for that I thought it was smaller scale. I will be using hydraulics rather than air so best to CAD from the ground up.

Regards,

Gregory

Cool! Would be nice to see what you come up with! I spend most my time building and designing the landingears. Very low tech, i might add. Its almost like the aeroplane is just something to attatch the gear on. Not really but you get the drift....

Started some rough CAD work and it looks like it should work, the turbine is a AMT Titan for scale and that should work fine.

Done some more work coming along nicely, got to adjust the wing angle and bring them closer into the fuse. Will start the tail section today and then do the intake section on the fuse.

I built a set of 104 gear a while back, not difficult just lots of parts.

1/6 scale ( I didn't build the model- just the gear)

I am looking for two sets of F-104 landing gear in 1/4th scale. Please advise if you know of anyone selling or manufacturing. I've already tried the Air World route in Germany with no response.

Thanks in advance for the help!
