Making FG Gear

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I want to make a fiberglass gear that will be the main legs for a scale model. I want to use music wire as the one piece axle/inverted V shaped spreader that some scale models use for shock asorbtion. At the apex of the V there can be a spade bolt using a compression spring (above gear and concealed in fuselage) to allow the gear to spread then return to normal shape.

It is the making of the FG gear legs that has me curious as to others attempts or successes at the same task. Picture the hobby horse shaped box that the matrix will be formed over using heavy cloth and polyester or epoxy to get the appropriate angles and then trim cut to correct profile and height. The wire gear looking like the inverted v with axles bent to exit through the FG gear legs and held in place by wheel collars or suitable method.

Anbody done this with any luck?

Thanks guys.
