I have snakes running in the wing core itself. They meet at a place near the leading edge of the wing where i have a space dug into the foam to recess a dymond 200 servo. I am going to use a wheel to connect the control rods to the servo which should provide adequate travel to pull the gear into the nacelles.

The gear is mounted in the nacelles so the wheels are at the leading edge of the wing for rog purposes. The wheels will rake backwards when retracted and be fully enclosed by the nacelles. No doors on this one, I dont want to get to overly ambitious on the first go with retracts.

Dont know what the wing loading will be but I am guessing it will fly similar to the MPX Twinstar. The root thickness of the wing is substantial. Its essentially a glider wing.

The foam is gardening foam I bought at the local craft store. Cheap, dense, light, and it takes regular CA! I am glassing the individual foam parts for strength, then they will be glassed again when I do the rest of the airframe.
