I also came across the same problem as Nick with the wheels not being designed to be modelled as retractable on my Airfix Typhoon 1B. So I've had to chop them about a bit so I could get them to tuck away.
My plan will be to have the plane mounted on an old telescopic antenna from a remote control box, so I will have to drill a hole in the fuselage undercarriage, stick the antenna in and tidy up with modelling putty.
I've also noticed that the cockpit is very basic, so I may have to paint some framework on the cockpit glass (not sure if I'm using the right terminology). At least the pilot was easy to paint.
