MAIN GEAR. Leg-Fuselage Fairing #3

I did not like the way the plans approach the installation of the main gear-fuselage fairings on a fixed gear. The fairing is supposed to be bonded to the leg and a significant gap left between the fairing and the fuselage. This is to allow leg movement from the gear’s fully loaded position at gross weight to the unloaded position in flight.
