Fuse is RED, and landing gear is finshed!

Landing gear is made out of 110mm plastic water pipe.
I used a hacksaw to cut a ring 4cm wide at one side and 2cm wide on the other.
then made a cut at 2cm end to create a strip. Ofcourse, the plastic retained its shape
so I had to heat iti with hot air gun and bend it to get the shape I want.
Used 4mm bolts with nuts to make two "axles" for my HobbyCity wheels.
These are for testing purposes. DIY wheels will be made later.
One of the fuselages received to coats of water based white paint two days before, and one coat
of red today. I'll see how it will look after it dries completely.
