Default Small servoless retracts

I have a 42" B-25 on the workbench. I want retracts but this plane is very light and the nacelles house the gear. Since the gear has to tuck up by pivoting forward towards the leading edge, it seems like retracts using servos are not possible unless I used some very small diameter cable like the yellow Du-Bro tubes with metal cable. At least the wheels don't have to rotate 90 degrees.

I think the plane will be all up only about 18 oz. or so. I have looked all over the net and I have not found a good fit.

Any ideas out there?

Dave

No servo-less that small that I am aware of. Alfa retracts are super light duty and work great.
