Am still thinking on this Gaz. If I can decipher the engineering drawings better, I might take a crack at it. After all, most of the stuff is made from leather which starts out flat and gets stitched into shape. Seems as if, at least in theory, I could get something to simulate the fabric even if its paper or some fine cloth, I could cut it to shape per drawings. Here is the assembly drawing of the dust pan and boot:
And a picture from the parts catalog:
Note there are three components to it - a couple of metallic dust pans that mount below the tail LG yoke, and roundish bag (or "boot") that hangs off a tube in the fuselage, and two "shields" that seem to wrap around the two arms of the yoke. They all attach to one another, then to the yoke and the fuselage itself. It's complicated.
What I really wanted was to fill the opening with some chunk of material roughly looking like wrinkled fabric, poke a hole in it for the landing gear strut, and declare victory. Like I did with the pilot control stick. But no - it won't be at all authentic. Hence my dilemma.
Am currently leaning toward doing a super-duper job on the yoke and all its clap trap and leaving off the boot.....
