Dont forget you will need nose weight. In mine I needed about 1 KG even though the engines were well forward and the tanks were on cg. I have a solid balsa nose and had to cut quite a bit away to fit the lead in. If you look at the full size it had loads of weight in the nose.

If you have the nose wheel with steering lines I fear you will have problems. Direct steering is definitely the best option. If you look at my model you will see that the whole of the centre section is open space that allows plenty of room for the servo and retract arrangement. In the design the main spar bridges this space on top and bottom.
