I'm not sure if the Brodak kit is the Thomas Design's Crane/Bobcat/AT-17/T-50 but HPA has a thread that covers some of the Crane T-50 build: Click Here
I'm not sure about landing with gear retracted and no damage.  But the gear did stick out of the cowling when retracted but I don't think that would give prop clearance!  And spinning props contacting the ground in landing would cause damage I'm sure!

I remember hearing once, the Bobcat is capable of landing, undamaged, with its landing gear retracted. I think also with its engines running. Did any of you also hear this? The Bobcat is airplane #47 on my airplane build wish list. I have the Brodak kit. But I hear it's a quite tedious build.

The Cessna Crane/Bamboo Bomber/AT-17 is one of the aircraft in the Aviation Museum in Victoria, BC as well as in Ontario. See https://www.warplane.com/aircraft/collection/details.aspx?aircraftid=10
