Here's a tip for Great War Plane undercarriages I took from Mike Allen's D.VII.
The problem is that most WWI planes have the back struts of the undercarriage in the same location as the wing... so how to you attach the undercarriage and still convieniently be able to take off the lower wing.
Mike solved the problem by making the undercarriage from 1/8 music wire, and securing it in only one spot... the firewall. The back struts are actually free standing, and the entire assembly has some spring to it. This way you can still easily remove the bottom wing.
See the graphic of my Pup design attached for an illustration of this idea.
