Default Any Machinist out there ?

HI all,
I am building a Kerry Sterner 1/4 scale Vampire and it has a curved nose gear door. There is a plate that needs to be machined that mounts the
trapeze to the door. I have the diagram for it, but it is totally out of my skill range

Of course I am willing to pay
Thanks,
Jerry B

Agree, you could even do it as a 3d print.

I tried drawing out the trapeze on paper, trying to use the machine dimension and it did not even come close in size, so I assume the decimal conversion to inches I was doing is wrong

I may be able to help you, but can’t see the thickness of the trapeze material, you may still have to drill and tap as all my taps are metric

Oh! Found it, it’s 3/16” I can do the flat part on aluminum on my CNC mill
