Are you going to be making molds? If you are, and it's an A, I'd be willing to contribute and pay for some pulls. This has been on my list since I was 12. One of my favorite aircraft.

Hey, I had considered entering this contest... but it would be this exact plane in this exact scale! How funny.

Are you doing an A or a B/C?

Wow... I was going to try one, but it's duplicated almost exactly. A 1/12th P-61A XD Though my construction techniques will be a little different. How surprised was I?

Yes, that helps. I may try it out, but it depends on how much time work is absorbing. :)

Laminated white foam core, unitized construction ( it will fit on my trailer nose/tail width wise). 4 70mm hoffman ducted fans. I'd like to stay with 8s for weight, but it depends on weight ahaha.

Yes, there is a bit of prop blanking with the Goshawk. It's such a good looking plane. I've said if I can find a "cheap" GP P-6E at a swap meet, I'd buy it and convert it, but I've never seen one for...

Really? I can certainly see the merit of it. So you don't run server power through the receiver but split a seperate supply directly to the servos, only running signal from rx to the servo?

Starting a common scale for all my craft

Being somewhat of a scale nut, hating such inconsistences such as 1:144th houses on 1:160th scenes (N scaler as well), I've been thinking about building my next few projects to a single scale.
