I just got an old unbuild CARF Eurosport with pneumatic retracts, intairco struts and brakes. But I would like to know who has made the retract bodies.
Nosewheel retract is quite special looking to me, it centers itself with a pin to steering and also rotates 90 degrees when going in.

Ok thanks! These look sturdy but are they good for anything? I thought about selling the the whole retracts with strut and brakes and getting electrons instead. What would be the price for things like this?

It can have a LOT of other applications. Just measure the "pin" size at the trunion. Should be between 50-70mm DIA. That helps to know which size struts it can handle.

As a matter of fact, they will sell quickly. We live in a modeling world were most jet manufacturers don't want to sell you a retract set without a kit, and retract suppliers are out of stock most of the time, so a lot of folks just try to buy whatever they can get and "make it work".
