micro Virus motor glider

what do you guys do for landing gear on a model thats semi-scale but under 15 grams?
i want to do tricycle gear like the plane i'm building but i dont have wheels that small. 0.010 music wire should be plenty strong and easily shaped, but what about the wheels? they would only be about 9mm in diameter if they are scale...
here is what i am building: http://www.mcp.com.au/sinus/models/virus.html
it will be all white EPS foam with plantraco 0.9g actuator rx, a 6mm motor and 30-50mah cell. should end up around 9-12 grams. just motor and rudder control for simplicity.

thanks guys!
