    I'm currently building "F" and "K" versions. I glued brake lines on the main landing gears, but I am unsure where the ends are supposed to connect to. I've hunted for photos, but couldn't find any detail of the actual aircraft. I've seen examples of models which suggest they are either connected the back side of the wheel (assuming it's a stationary round plate), or the bottom of the landing gear itself. Can anyone verify? Thanks!

    Rigid tube down the length of the strut, then looped flex hose connected to a nipple on the inner wheel hub. This is an E but F and, I suspect, K would be similar.
