As mentioned by Tom Arnold above, rubber powered B24's have been done before but with the more conventional method of transferring power to the propellors, here is a video of one performing rather 'hairy' flight at Geneseo in 1990:

Pictures of another, Chris Starleaf's 60" example, can be found if you scroll about a third of the way down this link:

Good luck with your ambitious project, don't forget to post pictures!
