The pilot noticed as he flared the aircraft for landing that the landing gear was not extended. During the subsequent go-around scraping noises were heard. The aircraft was climbed to circuit height and the gear selector was recycled. The subsequent extension of the landing gear was normal and the aircraft landed without further incident. Damage to the aircraft was confined to the inboard section of the right flap.
