Default Yellow Aircraft Zero

I recently started working on my Zero kit and am looking for a retractable tail wheel and cockpit kit. Does anyone know who makes a tail wheel assembly that will fit? Or a decent cockpit kit?

Thank you for the help.

Cockpits: dynamic balsa and Iflytailies. Robart best bet on tail wheel.

Yellow Aircraft sold B&D tail wheels for their planes which are still available from www.klasskotemo.com
I am not sure of the geometry on the Zero, so I am not sure if the B&D or Robart would look better.

There's not a lot room for the tail wheel retract in the zero.I doubt a #160WC will fit. Maybe the #580RS? Best bet is the B&D since that's what came with the kit.

There is no commercial unit that will fit the Yellow Zero. This is what FWJeff did on his Dave Platt 80" Zero.
