The only trouble you'll have is getting the tires up all the way into the wing.

You need to extend the nacelles to accommodate this as in the real plane. The airfoil is just too darn thin back there.

I would use air powered retracts too. Getting a mechanical retract to work is going to take some fancy pluming in the wings.

I got lazy and just used fixed gear. BTW they work just great. It's a real treat to watch her rotate off the runway and the taxi back gets everyone’s attention.

Good luck with it and be sure to post pictures of your work.
