Did I understand that you plan to line the main gear up with the outside edge of the intake? Wouldn’t it make more sense to line it up with the centerline of the fuselage? You are building up a model of a model. Any dimensional mistakes the Chinese mold makers made when laying out the plastic kit — and they make many — will be even greater on your model. At least you know for certain that the center line of the fuselage is a straight line down the middle of the airplane and an accurate datum for other measurements.
Hope you don’t mind a suggestion from a complete novice….I would mount the wing bottom section to the fusalage and then measure an equal distance from the nose to the leading edge and then another from the tail to the trailing edge and check for parallel to the centerline…mark that line inside the wing and you have the gear track line for the wheel after extension. Simple and quick.
