wingnut: not trying to dampen your enthusiasm one bit! Right now everything is safe and sound in your shop and you have all the time in the world to look at things from all angles. Carry on, but verify everything while it can still be adjusted. If Grant McLaren's Ultra Piet build pix are available anywhere out there, you should study those. His was an award-winner and a good flyer.

I managed to spend a couple of hours in the shop today. The door is hung back on. Then started on the landing gear. The left leg is cut and glued in the jig.

Chris; go back up this thread to Dan Oliver's post on Thursday March 1 where there is a sketch of the UltraPiet shown. It indicates a hinged door on the starboard side. By the way, unless I'm mistaken, Dan Oliver built and flew an award-winning JN-4 scale replica powered by an inline 4-cylinder like the Geo engine or something. Maybe I've got my names and planes mixed up though.

He took some pictures of his airplane for me many years ago, since I wanted to get some ideas on how he rigged his heel brakes.

Yes there is a door. It can be a fold down type or like mine

So pulled the gear leg out of the jig and put it against the fuselage to test the fit. Wasnt even close. Did some trimming and ended up with a leg way out of spec. Scrapped it and did take two with a template of the bottom of the fuselage to go by. Hopefully this one will fit better.

I built an ultrapiet years ago. Always check dimensions using actual parts you’ve built. Seems like a lot of the drawing dimensions don’t match previously built parts. Have you done cabanas or center section yet? LOOK OUT? Weight and balance was way off too. Be really careful. Flying it was fun but for the money, you might be further ahead and build a scout

Must be a different Dan Oliver. I only have a set of Ultrapiet plans because that's what I was going to build originally. After looking into it more, I figured it wouldn't be much harder to just go ahead and build a regular Piet.

Did a little more work on the landing gear. I cut two plywood sides out for the right leg and glued one side on.

Those bricks might be a tad bit heavy?

Spent a good part of the day working on my landing gear. The left one is tempararly on the fuselage to test the fit. Still have some work to do like more varnish and rounding off the edges. The right on has the plywood glued to the sides and is waiting for the t-88 to cure.

A little more progress on the gear leg. Now to start on the right side. Then take them back off to varnish, use a router to round off and varnish the bolt holes. Oh i know i will need shorter bolt and maybe some washers. I couldnt help taking a picture of the wheel sitting next to it

Did some work on the right gear leg. I got it far enough along to place the axle in position and slide the wheels on for a sneak preview.

Progress update. Metal fasteners are fabricated and did the seat belt attachments. Then the gear was removed so i can use a router on it to round off the edges. I also need to varnish it and the holes i drilled in the wood. I did some varnishing and made rudder peddles. The posts for the center section are cut out of fir.

Nice progress. What glue are you using on your wood structure, hopefully its T-88 epoxy.

The bottom of your gear isn't at the right angle.
Making the gear leg is the hardest part of the project
