PlanesPictures said:do you have idea why thickness of rocket bay doors is constant and thickness of undercarriage doors is mutable?
Looking at the original picture, I think the nose gear doors are actually quite thin, the area you have coloured at the front is just a local stiffening rib. The thin nose gear doors would provide more volume inside the gear bay, the constant thickness missile bay doors are more structurally efficient (i.e., lighter)
