The gear doors have already been moded to full reliable electric actuation with sequencer module. The all 3 struts are from skymester which is a sport gear, they don't offer scale 1/8th size struts. The main wheels to the struts have been upgraded to JP wheels and brakes with brake modules installed as well. Hope that makes sense for ya! The actual retract )not struts) that com from skymaster are air actuated and will com with the jet if you want them, but I would buy the 3 electric retracts that accept 11mm (electron Retracts ER-40eVo set B - without steering system) struts and go that route because air system compared to electric systems are not very reliable and cause all types of problems in flight. I you get the jet I'll give you the website to order them.

I would be very concerned with the tires and brakes holding up to the exhaust heat with their proximity to the turbine exhaust!

buddy, those struts, wheels and brakes are not attached to any retracts yet, they are just laying in there in the pic. The Turbine goes where the retracts are laying. The F-16 landing gear faces the other way (far away from the pipe) when retracted

No, there is no other pic that shows them installed. I'm not sure why you feel it necessary to comment about anything when you obviously have no plans on buying it.

Well, your very wrong! I was interested in your jet and had watched it since you listed it on the 11th, other wise I would not have asked my question! My mistake! I thought I remembered a video showing the gear retraction but you are correct, reviewed it and it was just doors. Good luck with selling your jet, with your attitude your going to need it!!

lol, what attitude. You're making wrong assertions about my jet on a public forum, so obviously I'm going to correct any wrong assertions. Stop taking things personally, every real buyer who I have dealt with over the last 15 years ALL contact me via PM or just buy it outright. You were never a real buyer just a tire kicker bud.
