Installing engine mount & landing gear

Category: 5: Firewall Forward — Steffen @ 13:47   — Hours: 6

Finally it is time to install the engine mount. I had to trim the lower firewall flange to make room for the main landing gear legs.

Then by lifting the fuselage by the engine mount, I could install the landing gear legs.

Next I dug out the main wheels and tires, and assembled them.

That’s it, first landing of my aircraft was in my basement.. 😉
