I’m trying to make a final decision on the tail wheel assembly. I’m using the Sierra tailwheel, but concerned that once I glue & screw that in place, how would I access/remove the tail wheel assembly if maintenance is required. It’s is a hard to reach back and the actual door opening is too small to get into to work on tail wheel if required. I just really hate closing things in that may need to be accessed later. So... open to ideas since I’m not an expert builder. In my pictures below, for now I made it so you can reach back in the fuselage and unscrew the tail off the bulkhead and pull the whole thing out. I think this might work… I’d be interested in what others have done or are thinking of doing.
