Quote from: Old Wombat on October 04, 2017, 10:05:20 AMHow often do you see aircraft taking off or landing with their wheels up?
Quote from: NARSES2 on October 05, 2017, 06:02:54 AMTo my mind there's no right or wrong. You display it as you want to, it's your model.Quote from: Old Wombat on October 04, 2017, 10:05:20 AMHow often do you see aircraft taking off or landing with their wheels up? Well I suppose they land with them up more often than taking off with them up, even if inadvertently Although there was a British proposal in the late 40's to have a "rubber" aircraft carrier deck whereby aircraft could land on their bellies and thus dispense with the weight of their undercarriage. There were even some trials conducted at Farnborough with Eric Brown involved. I assume they took off on a jetisonable "trolley" ? As for taking off with them up ? Something like a Walrus being catapulted I suppose ?

I will admit that I prefer models with everything dangling down and on show , but that's my right way and it doesn't have to be yours. If you can invent a display method that looks good AND confuses JMNs, you earn an extra cheer from us all.
