I Need Help to Make Bogie Landing Gear For Boeing 757-200 1/19 scale

#1
I Need Help On Making Bogie landing gear for my Plane. I Had some Ideals But problem I Can't Find a landing strut with V Type looking Spring (Picture or link of what i meant https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy...5_ksqtjS1QgpWCl9H00aAjRgEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds ) I Got The Ideal from Ramy RC's "Upgrading the landing gear for my 777X and Dreamliner" I Also Looked online in hobby kind for bogie gear, But there all sold out and high price or not right size for my 1/19 scale.
Also Got to work with These Items
Main retracts https://hobbyking.com/en_us/servole...-for-large-models-51mm-x-43mm-mount-2pcs.html
Nose retracts

10X Wheels 45mm

Wheel Retract mounting pin
https://www.banggood.com/6mm12mm-30....html?rmmds=search&ID=532426&cur_warehouse=CN
2X wheel lock 4.1mm

Also Yes I Know That The gear retracts Have a smaller pin so I will make it bigger for the struts to fit.
So Yea The Problem is how to make the Main 4 Wheels fit on the landing strut.

I think people are struggling to work out what help you want. There’s a long list of parts there but you haven’t built anything yet and there’s no hint of what plans you might be following or if it’s a total scratch build. That makes it hard to give advice. Most of the scale airliners seem to use pre made retractable undercarriage?
Lots of people have enjoyed reading your post, maybe some more detail about what you are stuck on will get a reply.
You will find people here are very knowledgeable and supportive but there’s not a lot of scale airliner builders or fliers here, maybe post on a forum for those builders too?

Maybe you will get more response on a forum that is only for scale airliners? Flite Test has some very talented builders on it but unless you are making the whole thing out of foamboard then the skills here are slightly different.
Scale airliners have lots of extra challenges that foamboard non scale planes don’t have, so you might get better answers from a more specialist group.
