I think combat plane in general are underrated in their handling. If you think about it though, it makes sense. To have any chance of staying on someones tail, you have to have a stable and very responsive plane.
As for doing landing gear, sounds like a great idea, but don't forget to add a rudder and a tailskid to hold the rear of the plane higher. Getting airborne reliably will be challenging without both.
