Yes- this is a great idea. I actually sent him a PM in the early days of this discussion but it was bounced back since his inbox is full. I suppose an email is in order...I'll do that and report back on any response.
Ming is a great asset to our hobby and he makes superb airliners. As you suggested, I bet he would change it around a lot... which could be great. I'm certainly in favor of an upgraded version of this model or an all-new Boeing Sonic Cruiser design.
I suspect he would go with a twin EDF setup. This would be much more "scale" but it would hurt some of the flexibility that pusher props offer...so there are plusses and minuses, I suppose.
I'll keep everyone posted.
