QuoteHi Robert, I've had a look at the drawings in BSP: Fighters & Secret Projects & it definately shows the undercarriage retracting backwards as the kit suggests. The wheels rotate, resting at 45 degrees. I'd still think the oleos would be mounted in the narrower slot though. It's seems they've got the wheel bay section the wrong way round, can it fit either way or is does it have to be fixed in the direction marked in the instructions?The drawings also show a pronounced tail down attitude when on the ground.Theres a copy of the diagram on this French language site:http://prototypes.free.fr/p1127/image/p1121_03.jpg
QuoteI've been looking at this drawing again Simon, I'm not sure that this is the P.1121. To start with the wings are the wrong shape (the P.1121 drawings I've seen the wings are all like an enlarged Hunter wing) and also the tailplane is mounted on the fin, the P.1121 has it's tailplanes mounted on the lower fuselage and below the tailpipe. They also have dyheadral.Robert
QuoteYep not the 1121, however Barrie Hygate's 1121 drawings have the same landing gear arrangement as the kit and the 1116 drawing...or its probably more correct to say that the kit is the same as the drawings. Its very likely that the Hygate drawings were used to design the kit.Cheers, Jon
QuoteSorry kitnut, all my information says the wheels stowed rearwards, which is in a bay behind the engine under the jetpipe and in front of the aft fusilage fuel tank.
