Default RE: ESM Dornier DO 335

You do have to open up a new way for the steering arms to go through. I think the gear plates are strong enough to support the nose gear but if you want to beef them up that will be fine too. any nose weight added will be useful. In the end I did add a 1/8" A/c Ply to to the top of the plate so I did not have to cut away more of the vertical former.... I also cut about 1/4" forward and 3/16" toward the rear from the fiberglass fuse to allow the gear to go in. Here are pics of how you have to rotate the gear to move in place...
