They were actually 3 1/2" wheels. I had wanted to do 4", but the 3 1/2" definately looked and worked best in the wings. I was afraid of cutting away more material in the ribs needed to actually fit in the wheel. The 1/7 model is just not quite big enough to fit the 4" wheels in my opinion. Better builders will probably disagree, but it was not worth the effort for me.

Good luck on the tail wheel retract. I looked into that as well. I opted for less complexity in mine. The only other significant mod I did was working bomb drops/drop tanks. You can see them attached in the picture above. That was very easy. I'll put them on my next Mustang since I still have the doors. I made them removable in case I did not want the weight and power drain of the extra servos.
