Model Airplane News Archives

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!

Hope someone out there can help me. I'm looking for an article I think was in Model Airplane News a few years back. Not sure when, but I think in the 90s. The article installed retractable landing gear in a high wing trainer.

What was unique was the fact that the landing gear was wire and the landing gear retraction followed a plywood track, and retracted into the fuselage ala Cessna.

Does anyone have the article or know where I can get it? Someone must have a hord of old MAN magazines.
