Default Patriot XL retract question

Is the Great Planes Patriot XL a nose mount or rail mount for the retracts in the nose. I am looking on tower hobbies website and can anyone help me with what part number to get for retracts. I want to use the robostruts with the retracts. I am stuck on Robart brand. Thanks, link is below

It is a rail mount. If you go to the link that bob put in his last reply and look
at page 24. and look at #4 that is where the retracts get mounted to.
I am currently building one now.It was supposed to be my winter project ,but I
am almost ready to cover it. I beefed up the rails for the retracts and fully sheeted the
wing.
