Thanks, and thanks for the YouTube comment. So do you think that will do? There are a few milliseconds here and a few milliseconds there that would make it better, but as far as I can tell, that's how it goes... different aircraft retract at different speeds it seems, since some videos show a quite stately retraction, others show it happening quite rapidly in clear stages, which I've tried to emulate.

Go ahead and say it now, and I'll decide if it's easier to do now or later...

Yes, I figured that from the videos - they go out on the virtual aircraft because it's kinder to frame rates for all the undercart to no longer be drawn once it's invisible On the subject of lights, do you know where the probe light is mounted (we don't even have a probe at the moment I think)? I'm about to start on the lights...
In light of all this, English Electric missed a trick, they could have used a spare contact form the undercarriage switches to disable the taxi lights when the legs are up! as it happens, you can accidentally leave the lights on for the flight duration without knowing! But, I guess, the cost of a spare bulb now and again isn't much compared to the addition of a couple of wiring runs.
