Was able to get a wing core cut out today.
This is actually more of a test wing core. It may wind up getting hacked up as I try to get the angled retract geometry worked out.
the wing is even thick enough out there in the middle where the retract needs to mount. According to my figgerin' it should be.
I spent most of the afternoon cycling the gear up and down figuring out where exactly they needed to be mounted and how much I would have to angle the mounts to have the wheel oriented correctly when extended.
I know there is a formula to figure this out, but you got to remember I got my edumacation in Louisiana. I do better working it out right in front of me.

Just a touch of washout at the tip
Perfect fit over the top view plan
