Esm P-51D conversion

Well I have been waiting patiently for this to become available http://www.troybuiltmodels.com/items/ESMP51D-71-F.html. Have the plane and retracts on the way, hopefully start the build thread in the next few weeks. Not sure of the power plant yet, probably a hacker a60 outrunner, I am leaning towards the A60-20M on 9-10s. Not sure yet until I get the plane in my hands to see on weight and cowl clearence. I have also been waiting for xoar props to unounce when their 4 bladed props are do out, I have e-mailed them for some info. I really like the paint scheme, other then the 4 bladed prop I would like to fit it with a retractable tailwheel. Other then that it seems it should be a stright foward build. I will post some pix when I get the plane, the retracts are scheduled to arrive the end of this week, plane early next week..
