70mm L39 Retracts

Hey guys, I recently acquired a foamy 70mm L39. Not sure of the model company on it. It's a REALLY nice model, The only issue is the retracts were..uh..to put it nicely, garbage.

I've been digging around and I can't seem to locate a good set. Does anyone have anyone suggestions or links to some retracts that could potentially work for this aircraft? Of course, I'm going to have to modify the aircraft so, I gutted the nose area and just kept looking for some. I figured I'd ask here where there's plenty of knowledge.

I've considered making it a belly lander, but I REALLY don't want to:./

Check out Hobbyking.. They have reasonably priced retracts & struts.. The L-39 you have could be the Fly Fly one...

I found these. Think they'd work for a 70mm?

Those might be a bit heavy for a 70mm jet... Usually use on 90mm ones..You're trying to keep it light especially if you're using 4 cell?? You fly off Tarmac or flat surface?? Look at struts..STT-01 & retracts 225000016... Let me know what you think..
