Quote from: royabulgaf on February 13, 2011, 07:08:07 PMI am fixing up an old Airmodel F2Y and I seem to be getting in over my head. I was looking at the landing gear photos of some of the survivors, and it seems more complex than I thought. I don't think any two of the survivors are alike. Anyway, I was mulling around doing an operational version. However, after a thorough search (actually a desultory glance at Google Images) I can't find any drawings of one. Where do the missiles go? Where do the 20mm cannon go where they won't get wet, cause gas ingestion in the intakes, or blind the pilot when fired?

I was surprised when recently watching the movie "Jet Pilot" to see an F-86 apparently fitted with such doors. It certainly smoothed the airflow over the fuselage.
