The Retract mechanics that lift the wheel assembly straight up to be scale. This is really a piece of work.

A close up shot of the gear in the retracted position. Gear doors are almost finished so the next step will be the linkage to make them close with the gear.

A shot of the mains with the  gear in the lowered position
