BadLemon.....just short of 87" with the ESM pods in place.
Joe.....good observation. I designed the models to accept off the shelf, 90 degree retracts to avoid expensive rotating units. The geometry works out great and the forward retraction allows the retracted gear to be mostly hidden by the nacelle. The full scale S-3 gear retracts aft, which I didn't want to do on the model because of the aft CG shift when the gear was retracted.
