Finally got around to installing Springair pneumatic retracts in the F-86. I was getting tired of the fixed gear setup, it looked a bit silly in the air.

There was some serious WOOD under that wing skin, the dremel reached 3000 degrees at some point trying to vaporize it, have to ask Kyosho what kind of titanium forest this variety came from ...

The wing is quite thin so the installation wasn't perfect, I covered the retract mounts for now with some temporary silver tape until I find some better solution (and a matching color).
