Ch 9: Main Gear & Landing Brake

I'm not quite ready to start Ch 9 yet but my main gear bow and nose gear strut arrived from Featherlite so I had to share.  In Chapter 9, I'll build up and install the main gear, install the axles, wheels, & brakes, and install the landing brake hinging and actuator.  It's a fairly long chapter, only 6 steps but there are 62 figures which gives you an idea of the number of details to be attended to. After this chapter, the blue canoe will start looking more like a vehicle of some sort instead of a boat.
