thanks Tom! It was a lot of work,but enjoyed doing it. Getting the tail wheel doors to work was a challenge. I used two minature servos so that i could get the doors to close/open evenly. I tried to attach linkages to the retract mechanism, but could not figure out the geometry. Hopefully, I won't be too tail heavy!

I learned a lot, so when (if...Ha) I get to my scratch build Brian Taylor BF-109E, I'll do better on the gaps, hinges, etc.

thanks again
