Hello All
I'm have currently landed at (exactly) modeling the front / main landing gear parts of my YF16 Prototype project over here:
- http://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/wip-general-dynamics-%E2%80%9Cyf-16-prototype%E2%80%9D-project.440049-%20/
- https://www.flickr.com/photos/yf16_prototype/albums/with/72157681093138243

So far i've (purchased the YF16 book and) searched this forum section and only found this thread:
- viewtopic.php?t=12675

These external (CAD modeling websites:
- http://f16model.blogspot.nl/p/diseno-en-solidworks.html
- http://selcukozmumcu.com/portfolio/scal ... ding-gear/

and these detail-images of the F16's main landing gear parts:

f16_landinggear_parts_measurements.jpg

>
f16_landinggear_parts_more_details.jpg

>
f16_landinggear_hinge_distance_from_ground_level.jpg


Questions:
- Are the dimensions (of these parts) publicly accessible?
- Where can I find the more detailed dimensions of the parts dimensions?
- What are the exact distanced between the 3 hinge points inside the fuselage?
- How far up from the ground are the hinges located inside the belly of the F16?

Thanks for your hints, tips and references.

This was the only book I was able to find (yet) that is only about the YF16.
