Default RE: Mach 1 Laser Kit Build

The following pictures show how the B&D nose gear fits. It is installed with a total of 6 (over kill ) 4-40 x 1/2" button head bolts and blind nuts. The 1/2" bolts come flush with the tank floor above so nothing to trim off. The cool thing about the B&D retracts is that they can be firewall or belly mounted or in this case both. I included a picture of the fuse on the scale again showing the additional weight of the retract unit ,mounting hardware and balsa F8 parts.

Next on the list is to get the nose gear steering linkage figured out along with engine selection and mounting. I would appreciate your thoughts on engines for the Mach 1.
Anyone out there?
