Hi Guys,

I got this photo showing a retract installation in the B-29. Here is the explanation to go along with it:

Ths is the main gear installation. The supports for the retract are
angled because the wheel would interfere with the motor mount.
Unfortunately the wheel will not retract all the way and shows a bit
at the bottom of the nacelle. As you can see, it was necessary to cut
away part of the motor mount to accommodate the wheels.

More photos to follow....

-Jim
