9A Poor Gear Fit
1 Attachment(s)
I installed the main gear mounts and neither one sits flush with the side of the fuselage. The gap in the picture is almost 1/8". Anybody else see this?

I suspect most of us have done some massaging at this point.

Yep, it's actually pretty common.

Just me
I must have angels looking over my shoulder because I did not have this issue. I am amazed that these parts, in general, fit so well after 4 years of bashing away with a rivet gun, smashing aluminum bits into rivets.

I do remember I had to coax one due to a slight gap. Less then 1/8
