Starting on the 737's nose gear, something Rookie2008 mentioned have come to pass . . . .the heavy China models rubber wheels that come with this kit are WAY to heavy for the retract motor of the servoless retract, i'll have to use lighter foam substitutes, plus I'll have to modify the nose gear well to accomidate the wheels.

Yes indeed K . . . . .I discovered that problem with the original Windrider 737 build thread and came up with that solution, good point though K.

Now I'm adding the nose gear to the 737, but there is one small problem thta everyone who's built the Windrider 737 has come across . . . . .there's not enough room in the wheel well for the retract to retract all the way into the well, here is the foam I cut away in order to solve this problem.
