Blohm und Voss P.212.02 - part 03

A little fine tuning on the wheel wells just to make sure they're big enough to accomodate the landing gears.
Note that the front landing gear has to twist 90 degrees before folding in.  This due to the space occupied by the engine intake tunnel.  On later jet designs, the intake will bifurcate to accomodate the pilot space and the landing gear.  (e.g. Mig 15)
