"The best laid plans"..............

Well, there's been a big space in the build of my B-2, it seems like all the good plans were somehow changed, and here we are with it still on the work table.
A maiden flight was tired a couple of weeks ago, but when we got out to the field the wind was just way too much to chance it.
I was hoping for a maiden flight prior to finishing it with the canopy, air scoops and paint details over the winter. That plan was changed......
So, here we are, still not finished and not yet flown, so what to do?
I picked these electric retracts and struts up for a super price, never thought I'd ever use them.
The plywood base and rails are very light weight, and the retract units are very light also, so I won't be adding a lot of weight to the plane.
I started with the mains first, the easiest to do, I'll be doing the nose gear next, and I've got it pretty much figured out already before I begin cutting.
