Cool! I'm signing in too.
This is one on my someday list.
It looks like the laser cut parts fit together very well, unlike the old die crushed crap.
I like your power system and retract ideas too.

I would suggest skipping the castoring tailwheel and connect it to the rudder. I tried a castoring tailwheel twice and the models were impossible to control on the ground. Full scale pilots have the use of the brakes for directional control and we have to rely solely on prop wash over the rudder.
