    What materials,production processes, joining details and surface finishes are used in the Tiger Moth and Messerschmitt BF 108/109 undercarriage?

    How did we get from Tiger Moth, Bf 108 and '109 undercarriage to the Mossie in 6 posts?! Oh well, any excuse to look at that Mossie again is a good one.

    You'll have to go to the US now Evan, the Mossie's over there now, although the second one is underway at Glynn Powell's. There'll be a flying Spit XIV waiting though. Sadly the Tempest (yes, Hawker Tempest II) has been put on hold since its owner died in a tragic plane crash a few weeks back. :(

    Not much help for the original poster here guys. I'd like to try to get this back on track but am in a hurry to get to work.

    Both the 109 and Tigermoth aircraft had metal landing gear struts but used different suspension methods. The 109 use an oleo leg, essentially an oil-filled piston with a torque link to keep the piston and lower assembly with the axle from turning around inside the cylindrical strut. The Tigermoth used a hinged frame with soem form of spring. Not too familiar with the 108 but I suspect similar to 109.

    I will see if I can elaborate more tonight.
