I've rough cut carbon fiber tube and knees from a smaller set of l/g, applying all of it to near-scale mains. 1/8 (3.2mm) music wire axles fit into the lower leg sections, and will be centered on dowel, self-pinning, anchored into the knee stubs. Springs allow the full travel when the model is at rest on the Landing Gear. I still have to length both upper and lower strut sections, to fit the height requirements. The l/g has to fit up into the fuse, so that's my main consideration, aside from setting the aircraft level on all the landing gear. I have no worries over large l/g openings/doors. The foam will hinge and the closure will have magnets to assist. Just simple cross-fitting pull cable to close the doors, spring-hinges to hold them open. Gear doors not scale.
