Default Retractable landing gear

Hi, I'm need to use retractable landing gear in my plane ( it is similar to Shadow UAV ), I need to lift fuselage at least 15" of the ground. My main worry is front wheel, I can't fold it frontward because my fuselage is too small ( about 40" ), plane weight is about 45 lbs. Could You advise me some simple yet effective solutions?

Thanks, Mark

What scale are you building? Unless you're building the full size plane, you don't need a 15" nose strut. AND, that gear doesn't look retractable.

I need retractable landing gear and that 15" space under fuselage.
