MAIN GEAR. Leg-Fuselage Fairing #6


I sanded the fairing gap with a coarse (36) sanding disc to about 1/8”. I believe the gap is large enough for both parts to slide over each other without touching. I filled with microballoons and sanded to shape, finishing it with primer. I tested them unloaded by jacking the airplane up while adjusting my wheels and the gap seemed wide enough. I noticed that the areas most prone to touch are the fore and aft points. Should there be a need to increase the gap for clearance while landing, only some sanding should do. This results in a much cleaner and aesthetic finish.
